LINCOLN — After two close calls, UNO finally won a match at the Ameritas Players Challenge on Saturday.

The Mavericks lost a pair of five-set matches on Friday against Nebraska and Arizona State but prevailed against Georgia 25-17, 25-22, 22-25, 30-28.

The match appeared headed for a fifth set, but Omaha fended off a set point at 24-23 in the fourth set and then outlasted the Bulldogs as the match ended after back-to-back UGA hitting errors.

Marriah Buss led the way with 16 kills, while Sadie Limback recorded 15 kills at a .464 clip. Even though the Bulldogs had a better hitting percentage (.222 to .204), the Mavs won battle from the service line with seven aces to one for Georgia and also committed fewer service errors (10-16).
