2011-12 UNO Basketball – Morning Round Up – 11/15/11

Filed under: College Sports,D2,Omaha Mavericks — Jon Green @ 8:00 am

The morning Round Up will feature several daily news objects.

First of all every morning I’ll let you know how future and past UNO opponents are faring. So without further adieu, last nights results.

Teams UNO is playing are in ALL CAPS. The winners are in bold.

Women – YORK @ Southwestern College – LOSS 52-73 (2-4)
Women – WESTERN ILLINOIS @ Vanderbilt – LOSS 95-51 (0-1)
Women – TULSA vs. byu – LOSS 64-61 (0-2)
Women – DALLAS CHRISTIAN @ MidAmerica Christian LOSS 85-17 (1-6)
Women – LOUISIANA-LAFAYETTE vs. LSU-Shreveport – LOSS 63-50 (0-1)
Men – COPPIN STATE @ Loyola (Md.) – LOSS 78-68 (1-1)
Men – COLORADO STATE vs. smu – WIN 75-56 (2-0)
Men – NEVADA @ unlv – LOSS 71-67 (0-2)

Two games to note… Dallas Christian will be a popular team to watch for me. They are now 1-6 and scored 17 points last night, including only 5 after the half. That matchup for UNO will be interesting in large part just to see how bad it will be.

Secondly we saw a battle of two teams UNO will play next month, and it was Wisconsin-Milwaukee who went to Northern Illinois and escaped with a 2 point win.

Secondly I’ll be posting a list of the UNO’s opponents and their current records (excluding games with UNO). This way we can see the strength of UNO’s schedule.

Thirdly I’ll be directing you to articles around the web covering UNO and their opponents in the next week. Right now that includes UMKC and South Dakota on the men’s side, and Upper Iowa on the women’s side.

South Dakota – South Dakota Release – USD is headed to Eastern Washington to play the Eagles on Tuesday night.

Fourth I’ll be using this place to update you on certain statistics on the season..

For example here and the men’s and women’s teams Pythagorean records. The Pythagorean record shows how the team should have performed given their points scored and points against. Of course after 2 games this means nothing. The women would have expected to win 1.5 games while the men would have expected to have won 1.72 games. It will be interesting to see how the numbers play out as the season continues.

That’s all for today. Be sure to check out the Women’s Basketball Recap of Saturday’s game against Metro State and the preview of tonight’s game against Upper Iowa, both available later today.
