A slow start cost the UNO women Saturday night as North Dakota State led throughout in its 66-55 Summit League win.
The Bison, who pulled away late for a 62-53 win over UNO on Friday, scored the first 10 points Saturday. The Mavs trailed by at least six the rest of the way.
UNO missed its first eight shots and didn't score until there was 3:53 left in the first quarter.
The Mavs, though, were within 27-20 late in the first half, and then their 15-6 run whittled the deficit to 46-40 late in the third quarter. Sophomore guard Ella Ogier scored 11 of her 13 points in the last six minutes of the third quarter.
UNO couldn't get closer. North Dakota State scored the first 15 points of the fourth quarter to put the game away.
Three-point shooting ended up being the biggest difference on the night. NDSU hit 10 3s, including six in the first 13 minutes, while UNO was 1 of 10 — its only make came with 38 seconds left.
Elena Pilakouta led the Mavs with a season-high 16 points and five rebounds. Sarah Schmitt added seven points and three assists, while Mariah Murdie had six points, but she fouled out after playing 13 minutes.
UNO (1-6) looks to snap a five-game losing streak when it hosts South Dakota State on Friday at 3 p.m. That will be UNO's first home game this season.
