Just as it seemed the UNO men's basketball team was about to drop its fourth game in a row and run it's record to 1-5, an unlikely hero stepped forward. Caleb Steffensmeier, a Mav not normally counted on to make big shots, hit a deep three to give UNO a 81-78 win over Chadron State as time expired.
The Mavs had a chance to make some serious program history this past weekend given UNO's push for a sell out game and an arena packed with more than 25,000 fans in two games. The Mavs didn't disappoint, and took two important conference wins against the No. 7 Wisconsin Badgers.
Over the past couple of years, Division I institutions and their fans have seen more changes come about than they're used to.
Thanks to conference realignment and the proposed idea of super conferences, college athletics has changed for good.
