A transition to Division-1 typically is a hard time for a program- try telling that to the University of Nebraska at Omaha baseball team.
In 2012-13 the obvious question facing the men's basketball team is, how do the Mavs replace Mitch Albers? At the end of his historic career, Albers was the second highest scorer in UNO history, missing the all-time mark of 1,816 set by Dean Thompson by just 26 points.
In the first round of what promises to be a budding cross-town rivalry, UNO took the first shot and defeated Creighton 3-2 before 4,224 at TD Ameritrade Park Tuesday evening. Playing in Omaha for just the second time all season, the Mavs rode strong pitching performances from starter Matt Tew and reliever Curtis Smith to get the win.
Dear Barry Bonds,
Watching Lance Armstrong make his confession to Oprah Winfrey last week has made us rethink your standing in the American sports culture. Bear with us Mr. Bonds, but the last week has given us all an interesting perspective on who our heroes are.
Lance Armstrong is a cancer survivor. But to us he was so much more than that because he beat cancer then became a champion. As a champion he raised money to fight cancer and gave us all a new outlook on what overcoming obstacles really meant.
Rose Shires and the UNO volleyball team are no different than any other team on campus. The youth of the team is going to force freshmen on the floor in order to make a starting lineup.
An emotional five-set loss to Fort Wayne on Friday drained UNO and the Mavs had little left in the tank for Saturday, losing to Oakland in four sets.
