RENO, Nev. -- Nevada's men and women will play in the Western Athletic Conference Tournament championship games on Saturday at Lawlor Events Center. The winners of the WAC Tournament will earn the league's automatic bids to the NCAA Tournament.

In their first ever WAC Tournament championship game appearance, the third-seeded Wolf Pack women will take on top-seeded Fresno State at 1 p.m., while the No. 2 seed Nevada men will face top-seeded Utah State at 7 p.m. 

The University of Nevada and the Reno Sparks Convention and Visitors Authority (RSCVA) are offering a special WAC Pack for $35 for Saturday’s men’s andwomen's championship basketball games. The WAC Pack will give fans a ticket to both championship games for just $35 instead of its $50 normal value.
