UNO outlasted the Missouri Western Griffons for a 96-84 win Wednesday night at Sapp Fieldhouse, though the game itself was a side note.
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.
Top seed Missouri Southern beat fourth-seeded UNO 88-85 in the semifinals of the MIAA Men's Basketball Championship in Kansas City, ending the Mavericks' season.
