After the UNO women lost 50-39 to South Dakota on Thursday night, the statistics sheet confirmed what Mavericks coach Chance Lindley and a Sapp Fieldhouse crowd of 651 witnessed.
On this night anyway, the Mavericks just weren't that good.
The Mavs shot just 33.9 percent from the field and went a stretch of 7:45 in the second half where they didn't score at all as the Coyotes completed a season sweep.
“You can go down the list of things we did not do,” Lindley said.
The Coyotes (15-14, 10-6), who entered the game leading the Summit League in rebounding with 40.4 per game, made UNO pay on the glass, grabbing 48 to the Mavs' 34 and getting 15 second-chance points.
“They killed us on second-chance opportunities. I thought the 50-50 plays as far as loose balls, I thought we definitely didn't cover most of those either,” Lindley said.
“This team has all year won games because of certain things, and some of those things didn't take place tonight.”
Paige Frauendorfer, who entered the game leading UNO with 14.8 points per game, scored 14 points, and Stacia Gebers came off the bench to score nine points on 4-of-8 shooting.
“I think we had a few bright spots every once in a while, but overall I'm just definitely far from happy or satisfied,” Lindley said.
The Coyotes jumped to an 18-12 lead when Nicole Seekamp, who averages a team-best 13.6 points per game, hit a bucket with 8:05 left in the first half.
The Mavericks took a 20-19 lead with 5:21 remaining in the half when Gebers capped an 8-1 run with a layup.
But South Dakota outscored UNO 6-1 to take a 25-21 lead into the locker room.
Each team shot just 32.1 percent from the floor in the half, hitting 9 of 28 shots.
The Coyotes held the advantage from 3-point range in the half, making 3 of 8 while UNO missed all five of its 3-point attempts and would finish 0 of 8 for the game.
Frauendorfer led all scorers with 10 points in the first half, making 4 of 7 shots.
The Mavericks caught South Dakota at 27-27 when Jamie Nash slashed her way through the lane and sank a jumper 2:25 into the second half.
But the Coyotes were able to claw back, outscoring UNO 10-2 over the next 5:27 to go up 37-29.
South Dakota opened its biggest lead of the game when Seekamp, who finished with a team-leading 11 points, sank a jump shot with 4:33 left in the game to give the Coyotes a 50-37 lead.
UNO's Casse Vaughn put in a layup inside of a minute remaining to make it 50-39.
The Mavs will finish their season Saturday when they host Missouri-Kansas City at 2 p.m. at Sapp Fieldhouse.
UNO is not eligible to compete in the Summit League championship nor the NCAA tournament until 2015-2016 while it continues to reclassify as a Division I program.
