Men’s basketball comes up empty on West Coast trip

UNO men's basketball is last in The Summit League in team defense, allowing 83 points per game.  That stat reared its ugly head again in an 84-79 loss Saturday night at Cal State Bakersfield.
A year after Omaha dropped two games to the Roadrunners in 13 days, the Mavs again came up short against Bakersfield.  The Roadrunners shot more than 15 points higher than their season average while improving their record to 7-13.
UNO dropped to 5-16 (2-6 Summit League) and allowed Bakersfield to make 53.8 percent of their shots.  The Mavs shot an equally impressive 50.8 percent, but came up just short at the end of the game.
