TULSA, Okla. — UNO's latest victory in its 10-match win streak assured that the Mavs won't be sharing the Summit League volleyball title with anyone.

UNO claimed the league title outright with a 25-20, 25-16, 25-20 sweep of Oral Roberts on Thursday. UNO improved to 16-1 in league play with one regular-season match left. South Dakota is in second place at 14-3.

The Mavs are 19-8 overall after going 3-7 against a challenging nonconference schedule. That prepared them for the league schedule, and now they're hitting on all cylinders, sweeping eight of the 10 opponents during the win streak.

Senior Sadie Limback led the Mavericks with 14 kills and 13 digs while hitting .419. Shayla McCormick added 12 kills, while McKenna Ruch and Marriah Buss had nine each. Sami Clarkson finished with 42 assists and 10 digs, while Jaiden Centeno had a team-high 20 digs. As a team, UNO hit .301 while holding Oral Roberts to .165.

Oral Roberts entered the night alone in fourth place in the Summit, but the Mavs never trailed in the first two sets. A 4-1 run closed out the first set, then an 11-2 run gave UNO a 21-10 lead in the second set. During that run, Limback, McCormick, Ruch and Rylee Marshall all had two kills.

There were 13 ties in the third set. The final one was at 19-all, and after an Oral Roberts serving error, Marshall had a kill around two McCormick kills to give UNO a 23-19 lead. An Oral Roberts error ended the match.

UNO wraps up the regular season Sunday at UMKC. UMKC and Oral Roberts are tied for fourth in the standings at 11-6.​
