The University of Nebraska at Omaha women's basketball team is looking for continued success as it rolls into only its second season of a full Division-1 & Summit League schedule.
Justin Simmons scored 25 points, C.J. Carter netted 21 and John Karhoff added 14 points, but Omaha men's basketball fell 96-81 to Oakland on Saturday at the Ralston Arena. The loss ended the Mavs' three-game win streak and dropped their record to 8-17 (5-7 Summit League), while the Golden Grizzlies improve to 11-13 (6-4 Summit League).
After battling back and forth for most of the game, Oakland's dominance in getting to the line proved to make the difference. Omaha made all seven of their free throws, but the Grizzlies were 28-of-38 and drew 23 fouls compared to UNO's 12.
A buddy and I have a theory about the NBA. There are NBA teams and there are association teams. Association teams typically play exceptional defense, exploit rebounds and can deliver in the half court.
