2013 Summit League Review–How did UNO stack up in their first year?

UNO, in just their 2nd year of D1 transition and first year playing in a conference had what has to be considered a fantastic season. UNO got solid, if not fantastic starts from their soccer teams and ended the year watching the baseball team win the school’s first Summit League title. Here’s a breakdown of how the school’s teams did throughout the year in comparison to other schools.

Overall Averages

School Fall  Average Fall Sports Winter Average Winter Sports Spring Average Spring Sports Total Sports Average Finish
NDSU 3.75 4 3.25 4 2.2 6 14 2.93
SDSU 3.5 4 2.8 6 4 8 18 3.5
South Dakota 4.5 4 4.2 6 3.8 6 16 4.13
Kansas City 5.2 5 5.5 4 2.9 7 16 4.25
Oakland 2.6 5 4.5 6 5.9 7 18 4.5
Omaha 6.25 4 4 4 4.3 7 15 4.73
Fort Wayne 4.4 5 5.7 3 5.4 7 15 5.13
Western Illinois 5.4 5 5 6 5.5 8 19 5.32
IUPUI 5 5 4 4 6.4 7 16 5.38

The tale of the tape is kind of interesting here. Knowing that Kansas City and Oakland won’t be around next year of the remaining seven schools you can see where the balance of power definitely is, the Dakotas. North Dakota State seems to be the premier program in the league right now with South Dakota State their closest competitor. It’s a bit of a further drop to South Dakota who was never spectacular as their best average was only 3.8 in the spring. they were however consistent with their worst average being only 4.5 in the fall.

Omaha has to feel fairly good about how their first year went. They were a bit off the pace in the fall as their 6.25 average was the 2nd worst of any school for any season (IUPUI had a 6.4 average in the spring) but they were much stronger in the winter and the spring as they got their season long average down to 4.73.

Historical Comparison

I wondered how UNO stacked up compared to the last few schools to move into the Summit. Now one thing to note here is that Fort Wayne began their transition in 2001, NDSU and SDSU began in 2004, and South Dakota began in 2008. None of the schools went through the kind of transition UNO is dealing with where they will spend 3 years competing in the Summit League while not being eligible for the postseason. All were able to build their programs much more before their first Summit competition. So how does UNO stack up in terms of average finish?

School Fall  Average Fall Sports Winter Average Winter Sports Spring Average Spring Sports Total Sports Average Finish
NDSU 2007-08 4.75 4 2.25 4 3.8 6 14 3.64
SDSU 2007-08 2.75 4 4.5 6 4.8 8 18 4.22
Omaha 2012-13 6.25 4 4 4 4.3 7 15 4.73
South Dakota 2011-12 6.25 4 4 6 5.3 6 16 5.06
Fort Wayne 2007-08 5.6 5 6 3 5.9 7 15 5.8

Few things of note… the Summit League was only 9 teams this year as opposed to 10 last year and 10 in 2007-08. Was that an advantage to Omaha? Probably slightly. But in that 2007-08 season there were only 7 returning members as three new members joined. So that was certainly an advantage for NDSU, SDSU and Fort Wayne.

NDSU had an amazing first year in the Summit and were extremely competitive. They stand out from the pack in this table. I think the case could be made though that Omaha’s season was the 2nd best of these five. Yes they were a half spot worse on average than SDSU five years ago, but that season for SDSU came in their last season of transition as opposed to Omaha’s second. I think this seems to show the future is very bright for UNO.

2012-13 Omaha Swimming and Diving – Retrospect

Filed under: Omaha Mavericks,Retrospects,Swimming and Diving — Jon Green @ 2:00 pm

Omaha can’t look back at this year as anything but a success. After a tough start against hard competition Omaha started the year 0-4 in duels before winning five of their last eight to finish the year at 5-7. They beat Division 1 opposition four times, Northern Iowa (twice), South Dakota State, and South Dakota. Omaha went to the Kansas Classic in November and finished 6th. They won the Grinnell Invite and came in 2nd to Northern Colorado in the Mutual of Omaha Invite.

In that Mutual of Omaha invite junior Maddie Hutt set school records in both the 100 breaststroke and 200 breaststroke breaking records set by Ashley Renshaw back in 2006 and 2003 respectively.

To end the year at the Summit League Championship the Mavericks set three school records and came in 3rd behind Oakland and IUPUI. One of those records that fell was Jessica Hessel’s 100 freestyle record, broken by freshman Natalie Renshaw.

Omaha’s future looks bright. Of the eight spots on the two relay teams that set school records, four were swam by seniors, two by juniors, one by a sophomore, and one by a freshman.

The other three relay teams all were inside the top five in school history and the 12 spots included three seniors, five juniors, one sophomore, and three freshman.

Of the top individual times at the school this year from the 14 events just two were by seniors. So returning those leading the other 12 events is huge. Four were led by juniors, four by sophomores, and four by freshman.

Omaha’s divers were a sophomore and freshman, and both showed promise this year.

It’s a good start to the Summit League for UNO and somewhere to build from into the future.

Paige Frauendorfer–Career Retrospect

Filed under: Omaha Mavericks,Retrospects,Women's Basketball — Jon Green @ 10:00 am

We’ve previous covered the career of Carly Cator, Carolyn Blair-Mobley, and Jamie Nash.

Today we’ll cover Jamie Nash’s career with the Mavericks. Paige played her high school ball for tiny Humphrey High School. She’s one of those great players born out of small time high school athletics. Paige was a four-time all-conference in D1, was a finalist for Wendy’s High School Heisman award in Nebraska, was all-conference four times in volleyball and won the state long jump three times. Woah. After that spectacular high school career she came to UNO and started her first three games. It was a somewhat slow start as she only scored 10 points and grabbed 11 rebounds in those first three games. She didn’t start again the rest of the year and while her stats weren’t spectacular as a freshman she showed a few moments of brilliance that provided a lot of hope for the future. Paige grew into the player she is today over time. 6.2 points per game as a freshman, 9.1 points per game as a sophomore, 13.1 points per game last year and then finally 14.8 points per game this year. She’s always been a good rebounder as well. She’s made 83 starts and has 1157 career points, 681 career rebounds, 188 career assists, 168 career steals and 59 career blocks.

Points:
1st Point – 11/15/09 vs. Dana – Paige had to wait quite a while to get her first point. She missed her first five FGs and her first FT attempt but finally hit a jumper off a Kylee Rinehart assist with 7:36 left to make it 65-43 Omaha.
100th Point – 1/20/10 vs. Pittsburg State – Frauendorfer passed 100 career points when she hit a three off of an Alyssa Green assist to make it 51-43 Mavericks with 12:34 left.
200th Point – 12/1/10 @ Washburn – This was Paige’s first big game as she would score 22 points. She reached 200 early in the game on a layup that made it 12-10 Washburn with 15:58 left in the half.
300th Point – 1/15/11 vs. Missouri Southern – Frauendorfer reached 300 career points when she made the front end of two FTs with 2:30 left and the Mavericks trailing 71-62. Omaha couldn’t get closer than six the rest of the way, falling 76-66.
400th Point – 2/26/11 vs. Pittsburg State – After scoring 10 first half points Paige reached 400 for her career when she hit a jumper with 3:24 left to give Omaha an eight point lead. Omaha would go on to upset Pittsburg State 79-73.
500th Point – 12/1/11 vs. York – A Frauendorfer jumper to make it 26-5 Omaha with 8:56 left in the first half gave her 500 career points. Hard to believe that was just 15 months ago and now she’s over 1,100.
600th Point – 12/31/11 vs. Missouri Western – Paige had 16 in this one and reached 600 career points when she made layup off a Jamie Nash assist to make it 14-9 Omaha with 11:48 left in the first half. Omaha went on to win this one 64-62.
700th Point – 2/2/12 vs. Sioux Falls – Frauendorfer scored her 700th career point on a layup that made it 34-22 Mavericks with 3:39 left. Jamie Nash, of course, had an assist on the play.
800th Point – 11/18/12 vs. Northern Arizona – Paige had 17 points and 13 rebounds in this double OT win and reached 800 career points when she hit a jumper with 6:19 left to make it 56-53 Omaha.
900th Point – 12/28/12 @ Kansas City – Frauendorfer had 11 points and 13 rebounds in Omaha’s first Summit League win. She reached 900 career points when she hit a jumper to make it 14-10 Mavericks with 8:57 left in the first half.
1,000th Point  – 1/24/13 vs. North Dakota State – Paige had a whopping 25 points in this one and passed 1,000 career points on a layup with 8:33 left in the first half and Omaha leading 18-13.
1,100th Point – 2/9/13 vs. IUPUI – Frauendorfer went off early in the 2nd half and hit 1,100 career points on a jumper that gave Omaha a 33-31 lead with 11:23 left. The Mavericks would go on to lose 45-43.

1st Rebound – 11/15/09 vs. Dana – Frauendorfer’s first rebound came with 5:55 left in the first half when she grabbed a Kayla Hofstetter missed three. Paige would end being fouled 10 seconds later but couldn’t hit the ensuing 1-and-1 for her first point.

400th Rebound – 1/24/12 @ UT Arlington – Frauendorfer didn’t grab a rebound until the 11:10 mark of the first half. That’s when she grabbed career rebound #400, a rebound of her own missed jumper.
500th Rebound – 11/25/12 vs. Southwest Minnesota State – Paige reached 500 career rebounds with 8:53 left in the game when she grabbed a Jamie Nash missed layup on the fast break. Carolyn Blair-Mobley would get the ball and be fouled to head to the FT line where she hit 1 of 2.

20th Rebound – 1/19/13 @ Cal State Bakersfield – Egli grabbed his 20th career rebound when he rebounded a missed three by John Karhoff with 15:02 left in the game and Omaha down 13. Egli would be fouled on the play and ended up hitting two FTs.

Assists:

Carly has started all 26 games for the Mavericks this season after appearing in 20 games in 2010-11. She spent two years at San Francisco State, one as a redshirt, before transferring to Omaha.

After an early three she headed to FT line with 2:14 left in the first half. She knocked down her first FT to reach 25 career points and cut the lead to 12-10. She’d go on to score eight points in the game. That was her career high until the game at Indiana Dabney on January 19th.
50th Point – 11/21/12 vs. Saint Louis – Cator came in to 2012 sitting on 47 points. After scoring two in the first game she was still sitting on 49 when Omaha took on Saint Louis at the Sapp Fieldhouse.
