UNO's women's basketball team fought hard but couldn't make up for a 14-point second-half deficit, losing to Missouri Southern 76-66 Saturday at Sapp Fieldhouse.
Bemidji State's Matt Read scored 52 seconds into overtime to give the Beavers a 3-2 win and his team left Omaha taking seven out of a possible eight points in the season series. With the tie on Friday and the loss Saturday, the Mavs are now 3-6-1 in their last 10 games.
Tyler Bullock had a great night on offense, scoring 26 points. Unfortunately for UNO, it needed the senior guard from Lincoln to score 29.
Mitch Albers sank a 55-foot half-court shot as time expired and UNO escaped Warrensburg, Mo. with an 81-79 victory over the Central Missouri Mules on Saturday night.
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. UNO played in Colorado Springs against the Tigers of Colorado College and, eleven days later went across the country to Hamden, Conn. to face the Quinnipiac Bobcats.
The National Football League isn't a numbers-driven league like Major League Baseball and the National Basketball Association are. It doesn't have anything equivalent to Joe Dimaggio's 56-game hitting streak or Wilt Chamberlain's 100-point game. The NFL does, however, have one number that resonates with fans: 17-0.
