2011-12 UNO Basketball – Morning Round Up – 11/16/11

Articles About UNO:

Here’s a good article by Rob White about UNO’s talented freshman, C.J. Carter!

Highlight:

Carter, a former All-Nebraska guard from Omaha Benson, more than held his own against IPFW. He hit 7 of 12 from the field, including 3 of 4 from 3-point range.

“CJ is fearless,” Hansen said. “I don’t think anything scares him. He has no problem pinning his ears back and taking the ball into the lane, and he’s really quick in transition.

“Would I have been surprised to see a freshman do what CJ did in his first game? Maybe. But since it was CJ who did it, I don’t think it did surprise me.”

Carter, 6-foot and 170 pounds, spent most of the summer at UNO, improving his strength in the weight room as well as working on his game and adjusting to the speed and intensity of college basketball.

UNO will be playing at North Dakota State a week from last night. North Dakota State opens their home schedule tomorrow night against Wisconsin-Green Bay. Here is the preview from NDSU’s website.

Former Mavs:

Former UNO player Tyler Bullock recently got a chance to play for the London Lightning. He was signed a week ago, played seven minutes in a game last week grabbing one board and two assists, but was released yesterday when London swung a 2-for-1 trade that grabbed them Rodney Buford and one other player. Hopefully Tyler will get another chance soon!
