UNO Baseball – Conference Championship Scenarios – Previewing SDSU Series

Filed under: Baseball,Omaha Mavericks — Jon Green @ 2:00 pm

It’s 4 game over 3 days starting tomorrow…

vs. South Dakota State on Thursday the 16th
DH vs. South Dakota State on Friday the 17th
vs. South Dakota State on Saturday the 18th

And all UNO needs to do to win a share of the conference title is win a single game! Two games up on SDSU coming in so a 3-1 split for SDSU only evens the standings. A split for UNO? That’d give them the conference title outright!

Was there anyone at UNO during the start of the D1 transition who would have said, “You know… I think that first year we could have a team at home playing for a conference title in the final week of the season”? I doubt it… I don’t think anyone realized just how competitive most of the teams would be.

And against all expectations… UNO was picked to finish last in baseball, although just barely behind Fort Wayne, and now they look likely to finish in 1st. Incredible.

Once this weekend is over I’m planning on writing a recap of the entire Summit League season and just how good UNO was… It’s shocking for a program in their 2nd year of transition from D2.
