UNO showed no lingering affects Saturday afternoon from Thursday's five-set loss to South Dakota as the Mavericks rolled to a 25-8, 25-18, 25-18 win over South Dakota State at Baxter Arena.
"We didn't serve that well Thursday," UNO coach Matt Buttermore said. "We really came out and served well in the first set and dictated the tempo that way."
UNO, which improved to 7-1 in Summit League play, finished the first set on a 15-1 run. Shayla McCormick was at the service line for 12 straight points and had two of her three ace serves during the opening set.
The Mavs also finished the second set on an 8-2 run, and won the match's last four points against SDSU (12-8, 4-5).
Sadie Limback had eight of her 13 kills in the third set and hit .393 for the match. Marriah Buss added nine kills, McCormick had eight kills and 12 digs and Millard North grad McKenna Ruch finished with seven kills while hitting .353.
As a team, UNO hit .324 while holding South Dakota State to minus-.041. UNO also had 11 blocks; Rylee Marshall was in on eight of them and Sami Clarkson had six blocks along with 32 assists.
UNO will play UMKC at Baxter Arena on Tuesday.
