Coach Jason Mims firmly believes the best way to find out about your team is through a tough schedule. That’s why he took his fourth UNO men’s soccer team on the road to No. 4 UCLA, the top seed in last year’s NCAA tournament, this week for its second exhibition match of the preseason.
UNO finally becomes eligible for Division I postseason play next year. But Rose Shires said she doesn’t think of her program, entering its final D-I transition season, as a newcomer to the highest level of collegiate volleyball.
Mark Moulton and Felipe da Silva each scored second-half goals, but the UNO men’s soccer team couldn’t rally from a 4-0 deficit Tuesday against No. 4 UCLA, falling 5-2 in an exhibition.
Mavericks coach, players hope exhibition victory bodes well for final season of D-I transition.
