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.
In honor of Black History Month, I spent some time thinking about some of the lesser-known black athletes and coaches of the past who've served as pioneers for their sports.
The UNO women's soccer team capped off a perfect week with a dramatic 1-0 overtime victory in Saturday's senior day matchup with Washburn University. With another 1-0 victory earlier in the week at Western Illinois, the Mavs improved their record to 5-6-1 and have a chance to get to .500 with one game left in the season.
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.
