UNO will also add two Omahans to the roster, including Creighton Prep grad Jake Linden, who is transferring from Xavier University after an injury-filled freshman year. Linden, who scored 14 goals and had 13 assists his senior year at Prep, will have four years of eligibility left. The 14 new players will join 11 regular season starters for the Mavs, who are coming off a 1-11-1 season.

UNO women’s basketball coach Chance Lindley has announced the addition of another recruit for the 2012 signing class. Allison Jackson, who is currently a senior at Burges High School in El Paso, Texas, is a latest recruit during the 2012 signing period. Jackson averaged 14.6 points and 8.8 rebounds per game for the Mustangs as a senior. She also helped Burges finish 22-12 this past year and earn a trip to the state playoffs. Joining Jackson as new UNO recruits for the upcoming season are incoming freshmen Kate Bayes and Ashlie Bruner as well as junior college transfers Casse Vaughn and Ericka House. The Mavericks are coming off a 15-12 season and are looking for improvement heading into Lindley’s second year as head coach.
