The UNR Basketball team has had it's most successful season in school history. The pack has won four of the Mountain West's six individual awards including Player of the year, Defensive player of the year, New Comber of the year and Coach of the year.
During the first and second rounds of the NCAA tournament, The Wolf pack knocked off the #10 Texas Longhorns 87-83 in overtime and the #2 Cincinnati Bearcats 75-73. UNR now has its eyes on the Elite 8 and then the Final Four in San Antonio, Texas! However, it won't be easy. On March 22nd they play the #11 Loyola Ramblers who just knocked off the #6 Miami Hurricanes 64-62 and the #3 Tennessee Volunteers 63-62. I know all of Nevada has their fingers crossed for one of our beloved colleges as we wrap up March.
