Mav Hockey struggles to break 1-3 record during break

When the first semester ended and while most of us were still enjoying time off from classes and sleeping in, the Maverick hockey team embarked on road trips to two different time zones.

The Mavs had never skated in the ultra-competitive WCHA, and 10 of the teams' 25 members were freshmen, new to the college game.  Experience in the WCHA won't be an issue this season.


Mavs snap Bulldogs’ streak

Minnesota-Duluth skated into the CenturyLink Center Omaha as a team of history.  When the Bulldogs left Saturday night, it was UNO's freshman forward Andrew Schmit who made some history of his own.


Volleyball shows resolve but drops two

For a team that had yet to show any mental toughness, Friday's loss to Drake was a step forward for the UNO volleyball team.  Coaches and players don't like to talk about moral victories.
