Earning his way back

Another season of welcoming in a large freshman class meant a rather large unknown to the UNO hockey season.  Inconsistent play in goal only added to the uncertainty.


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.
 


Curse continues

UNO's troubles with Bemidji St. in 2011 might have been considered somewhat of an anomaly.  After all, the Beavers had only nine conference wins all of last season, and five of those came against the Mavs.


Massa’s strong play creates conflict in net

Ryan Massa's career as a UNO goaltender couldn't have begun more ominously.  In his first career start against Alaska-Fairbanks, the first shot he ever saw got past him.


Back on Track with a Sweep of the Seawolves

After the Mavs failed to score against Alaska-Anchorage in last Friday's 3-0 loss at the Brice Alaska Goal Rush, the Seawolves came to Omaha for a WCHA conference matchup and were swept by UNO 4-1 and 3-1.  With the two wins, the Mavs snapped a rare three-game losing streak and picked up their first conference points of the season.


Volleyball finishes with loss at NDSU

UNO volleyball lost in straight sets at future summit league opponent North Dakota St. and ended their season with a 5-23 record.  The Bison handled the Mavs 25-11, 25-18, 25-19 and took sole possession of first place in the conference.


Freshman looking for ways to ‘make putts’

When a guy hasn't scored a goal in a while, some critics might say he's gripping the stick a little too tightly.  UNO Head Coach Dean Blais said he looks at the lack of scoring from some of his freshman a little differently.


Sustr Gets Offensive

At six foot eight inches, Andrej Sustr is an attractive candidate to play defense for almost any college team.  His size makes him difficult to get around, and his reach makes up for the times when a guy can get around him.
