UNO catcher Colby McCord has started every game this season for the UNO baseball team (27-12, 23-11 MIAA). The junior is batting .336 with four home runs and a team-best 34 RBIs. The Papillion native hit three home runs and drove in 11 runs in last Friday's sweep of Fort Hays State.
UNO walked three of the first four BYU batters and allowed the first five hitters to score en route to dropping their first home game of the season 19-9. The Mavs came back to get within 8-4 but a six-run top of the fifth was more than UNO could withstand.
Last weekend at No. 1 Emporia State, the UNO baseball team was able to earn a series split, handing the Hornets their second and third losses of the season. The losses dropped Emporia out of the top spot in the MIAA standings and set up another big weekend series against a Central Missouri team ranked just ahead of the Mavs.
The UNO men's basketball team didn't allow Pittsburg State to ruin Senior Day, winning 85-69 Saturday at Sapp Fieldhouse. Fittingly, seniors led the way.
