UNO volleyball won just two sets all tournament and left the CEFCU Classic in Peoria, Ill. with an 0-3 record to start the season. Friday the Mavs lost a 3-1 match to the University of Illinois-Chicago, came back for another 3-1 loss to Bradley that evening and dropped a 3-0 decision to the same Bradley team the next morning.
The UNO volleyball team traveled to Denver for the Colorado Premier Challenge last weekend, earning their second win of the season but dropping three others to go 2-10 on the year. The Mavs' lone victory came in a 3-2 set win in Friday's 3:30 p.m. match against Cal Baptist.
The schedule maker didn't do UNO any favors in the Mavs' opening weekend of Summit League play. South Dakota State and North Dakota State, two teams picked to finish in the top three of the conference, came to Omaha on back-to-back nights.
