Bullock, Mavs win 65-49

The UNO men's basketball team beat the Nebraska Wesleyan Prairie Wolves 65-49 Saturday in front of 473 fans at Sapp Fieldhouse. It was the first regularseason game for the Mavs, who were coming off a 102-72 exhibition loss to Michigan State last Monday. UNO senior guard Tyler Bullock led the Mavs with 24 points on 9-16 shooting from the field. The 2010-2011 First-team All- MIAA selection also added seven rebounds, five assists and four steals in 31 minutes of play.

Ahead of schedule

Women's basketball left the Sapp Fieldhouse Saturday afternoon, heads hung low, disappointed in their performance after a 74-64 loss to conference leader South Dakota State.  The loss marked just the third time all year an opponent had come into Omaha and won on the Mavericks' home court.
Before Saturday, UNO had a 10-2 mark at home and was in the midst of a five-game home winning streak.  But a 22-7 run over the final 9:16 of the first half turned a three-point Jackrabbit lead into a 15-point lead by halftime.  UNO came within nine points twice in the second half but never really recovered from SDSU's big run.
