Former WNBA Player and Olympic Gold Medalist Ruthie Bolton Visits Pack

ruthie.jpgThe Nevada women's basketball team had a special guest in its locker room following a tough road loss to Pacific last night. Former WNBA player and Olympic Gold Medalist Ruthie Bolton stopped by to offer some words of encouragement and meet with the team. Bolton and current Wolf Pack women's basketball director of basketball operations Carla McGhee played together on the 1996 Olympic team where the squad won the gold medal in Atlanta. Bolton and McGhee also squared off against each other in the SEC, as Ruthie played for Auburn while Carla played for Tennessee.

Nevada will close out its road trip tomorrow against UC Irvine, before returning home for the annual John Ascuaga's Nugget Classic at Lawlor Events Center Nov. 23-24.
