Re: Recruiting

I don't think Hill is still in the cards for NV. Harris is slotted to play the point next year and Alford already has signed two freshmen point guards.,

I think you have as good a chance as anybody to get him..

Re: Recruiting

I would be pretty surprised if Queta left.

Just looking from the outside I don't expect much drop off from USU.

Losing Merrill hurts but you appear to coming back with a really experienced core..

Of course it is unknowable at this juncture but you should still be a top 3 or 4 MW squad.

Re: Recruiting

Alford had him in for a visit last summer. He is really really really athletic. Amazing hops. It was a bit of a surprise he didn't commit at the time. Reportedly the visit went well. I don't know if he is still in the cards for the Pack, though. Alford still has an open scholarship. I think he will ...

Oops..bad math skills with the first post..

The Pack is bringing in 2 D-1 transfers next season. They will be losing 4 with this graduating class.

Harris will be the last transfer from the Muss era.

I personally don't mind adding transfers. It is a way to get talent and D-1 experience.

Re: CSU/The Future

As long as we can defend and MAKE shots, I'm good with our athleticism. As for CSU, I doubt we lose at home to anyone else. On the road? I have no confidence that we can beat anyone. Great point our biggest issue this year and especially in conference is our shooting. Our 3 point shooting is horren...

Re: Much needed win!

I am sure he would rather not do that but he doesn't have a lot of guys to work with..I do think he will have fuller rosters going forward..

He was supposed to have 6'7 Eric Parrish but he left a couple of days before the season started. I think it was academics but he was a big loss.

Re: Much needed win!

Jazz is statistically the best defender on the team . The plus/minus numbers are excellent.. Alford wants him to take 10 or more 3's a game because he hits 45 percent. Alford has also instructed the Pack to drive more to get more foul shots. The Pack lost a game in a tough place to get wins against ...

The travel partner thing is problematic too.. Say the conference adds NMSU. They would pair up with UM. WY and CSU works. But then it gets a bit more dicey. There is nobody close to AFA.

The spread is up to 9.5. If Nevada loses, as expected, it will be a drag for their fans though not much of a game changer for a team picked to finish in the middle of the MW. But if USU loses? Yikes!!!

Nevada has played 4 true road games. They beat AF and lost to SJSU on Wednesday. The other 2 losses were to teams fairly comparable to USU. Davidson beat Nevada by 20 points and BYU defeated the Pack by 23 points. I assume, despite your recent scuffles, USU will be around a 9 point favorite. Only 3 ...

What do you guys know about him? He came to Reno over the weekend and Alford offered him a scholarship for 2021. He is from Provo so it seems like BYU, Utah and USU might be looking at him too. He is currently listed as a 3 star.
