The UNO baseball team took two road wins at Southwest Baptist on Friday. The Mavs (5-2, 3-1 MIAA) beat the Bearcats 8-2 in game one and 8-3 in game two. UNO rebounded to win the last three games of the four-game series against the Bearcats after dropping Thursday's opener 11-8.
The Mavericks' rebounding woes continued Friday night with a 98-69 loss to No. 14 Fort Hays State. In their last two games, the Mavericks have been out rebounded 94-51. An injury to sophomore center Josh Lynch continues to hamper UNO's inside presence, forcing the Mavs to start four guards. The injury also puts the rebounding burden on UNO redshirt freshman center John Karhoff.
Three pointers can often shoot you into or out of a game. Such is the double-edged sword of relying on an offense that comes mostly from beyond the arc.
When the college basketball season tipped off last weekend, the UNO men's basketball team stepped into the big time. Like the rest of the university's athletic programs, men's basketball is entering its first season in Division I competition.
In a season of change, success at home was the constant. In eight home games at the Sapp Fieldhouse, only one opponent had come in and stolen a win away from the UNO women's basketball team.
