Despite being near the top of The Summit League all season, UNO women's basketball has struggled to find conference success on the road. Prior to Saturday the Mavs had gone 1-4 in league road games, last winning 61-44 at Kansas City over a month ago.
But a 67-63 win at Oakland has pushed UNO back into fourth in The Summit League standings with six games to go. The Mavs get four of those at home, only having to play two more away from the Sapp Fieldhouse.
The Mavericks shocked No. 6 Washburn 87-83 Saturday at Sapp Fieldhouse, handing the Lady Blues their second loss of the season. The Mavs' upset victory followed a 98-59 beating at the hands of Pittsburg State on Wednesday.
While the state school in Lincoln will soon be making the yearly trip to East Lansing, Mich., Monday night it was UNO coach Derrin Hansen's men's basketball team that had the honors.
