Scouting UNO: The Mavericks rallied past IPFW at Baxter Arena Thursday to snap a three-game losing streak. For the second straight game, UNO used a big third quarter to wipe out a halftime deficit. The Mavs also had a monster third, scoring 27 points, in their first meeting with North Dakota State this season — a 77-52 victory in Omaha in the Summit League opener. Remy Davenport hit six 3-pointers and paced UNO with 23 points in that game. Mikaela Shaw, the leading scorer in the conference, had 19 points and 14 rebounds. Shaw has led the Mavs in scoring in each of their last six games. UNO enters the game sixth in the league standings with four left to play.
Scouting North Dakota State: The Bison have had a rough season and are last in the Summit League. But they’ve recently dropped one-point games to the teams in third (IUPUI) and fourth place (Oral Roberts). Both were decided in the final seconds. North Dakota State had a shot at the buzzer to beat the Jaguars Friday, but it was off the mark, resulting in a 64-63 defeat. The Bison still need at least one win to get into the conference tournament, and none of their final four games are against the teams near the top of the league. Marena Whittle led NDSU with 21 points Friday. She had 19 points and 15 rebounds in the first game with UNO.
