By practically any measurement, the difference between No. 19 UNO and its weekend nonconference opponent, New Hampshire, is razor-thin.
The Mavericks are just in the national top 20, while New Hampshire is among those receiving votes. In the PairWise rankings used to help determine the NCAA tournament's field of 16, UNO is No. 20 and the Wildcats are No. 21. That order is reversed in the RPI rankings. UNO is a shade over .500 at 8-7-1, while New Hampshire is 10-10-1.
