UNO unveiled on Friday the statue depicting legendary quarterback Marlin Briscoe, who went on to become the first black quarterback to start a game in the NFL.
Until Friday night, UNO had been unbeaten in five-setters. All three victories the Mavericks had posted this season had come in matches that have gone the distance. And in each of those, UNO won the decisive final set by two points — the slimmest of margins.
Emmanuel Hamzat scored with less than three minutes remaining to lead the UNO men to a 1-0 win over Air Force on Friday night.
