RENO, Nev. – The University of Nevada and the Mountain West announced the men’s basketball conference schedule today, featuring a total of nine home games for the Wolf Pack.
The Pack will look to defend both its regular season and conference tournament titles in the third year under head coach Eric Musselman. Nevada boasted a 14-4 conference record in the 2016-17 season, going 8-1
“Our Mountain West schedule is extremely challenging, beginning with our opening game at Fresno State and ending on the road at San Diego State,” head coach Eric Musselman said. “We feel like the league is very deep, one through 11, and every game is extremely important.”
The conference schedule is subject to change as games may shift a day to accommodate television broadcasts. The television schedule will be announced at a later date along with tipoff times.
The schedule features home-and-home series for eight of the conference matchups, while the Pack will only play New Mexico in Reno and Air Force on the road.
The Wolf Pack’s first conference game is set for Dec. 27 at Fresno State, while the conference home opener is set for Dec. 30 against New Mexico. Rival UNLV will visit Lawlor Events Center on Feb. 7 and the Pack will head to Vegas on Feb. 28. The first rematch of the regular season and tournament championship game will be on Feb. 3 when Nevada travels to Fort Collins to face Colorado State. The Rams will make the return trip to Reno on Feb. 25, the Pack’s only Sunday game this year.
The 2018 Mountain West Championship is set to begin on March 7 for the men with the tournament winner being crowned on March 10.
