OMAHA ATHLETICS REWIND JAN. 30 - FEB. 5, 2017

HOCKEY

The Omaha hockey team tied and lost at No. 1 Minnesota Duluth last weekend. On Friday, the Mavericks twice erased one-goal deficits to forge a 2-2 draw with the Bulldogs. Luc Snuggerud and Ian Brady both scored and Evan Weninger made 37 saves. UMD would earn an extra standings point with a shootout win.

On Saturday, the Bulldogs blanked the Mavericks, 5-0. It was the second time in two weeks that UNO had been held without a goal. Weninger stopped 30 shots in the rematch. The Mavericks finished 0-3-1 against UMD which was ranked either No. 1 or No. 2 during all four meetings.

MEN'S BASKETBALL

The Omaha men's basketball team picked up two wins last week, pulling within a game and a half of first place in the Summit League standings. On Wednesday, the Mavericks withstood a late threat by South Dakota to win 91-83. Tra-Deon Hollins flirted with a triple-double, posting game highs of 19 points, eight rebounds, nine assists, five steals and two blocks.

On Saturday, Omaha recorded the program's first road win over Western Illinois, sinking the Leathernecks 79-67. Marcus Tyus finished with a team-high 25 points on five 3-pointers with six rebounds, four assists and a steal. Tre'Shawn Thurman added 16 points and six boards, while Hollins had another 12 points, four caroms, eight assists and three steals.

WOMEN'S BASKETBALL

The Omaha women’s basketball team went 0-2 last week. The Mavericks dropped a 79-47 decision Thursday at IUPUI, where Mikaela Shaw scored a season-high 29 points on 12-of-19 shooting with nine rebounds.

On Saturday, the Mavericks lost 80-63 at Western Illinois. Michaela Dapprich scored a team-best 17 points to go along with five steals. Ellie Brecht added 14 points, and Shaw chipped in 10 points.

MEN'S TENNIS

The Omaha men’s tennis team dropped its match at Iowa on Friday, 6-1. Razvan Grigorescu picked up the Mavericks’ point with a 6-4, 6-7 (10), 1-0 (9) victory over Josh Silverstein at No. 1 singles. Alex Woodward dropped a split set decision at No. 6 singles 3-6, 7-5, 1-0 (7).

TRACK & FIELD

Anna Edet of the Omaha track & field team put up the third-best weight throw mark in school history, leading a string of personal bests at the Dakota Realty Alumni Meet at South Dakota last Saturday. Edet had a throw of 53-05, a personal best mark that ties her with Liz Thompson for third at UNO all-time. It’s the third time this year that she has put up a mark that ranks among the top six in school history. Edet took third in the event. Maddy Partridge put up a season-best mark of 47-00 ¼ in the weight throw to finish ninth. Lauren Doeschot was 10th at 46-05 ½, and Kristen Leisinger was 11th at 44-11 ¾, both personal bests.
