#55 Nevada Wolfpack: College Basketball 111 in 111

nevada cheerleaders

Welcome to The Sports Bank’s third annual college basketball season preview series.  Two years we looked at 99 teams in 99 days.  Last year, we were slightly more aggressive and expanded to 111 teams in 111 days and will do so again as we look ahead to the 2012-2013 season.

We will rank the 75 power conference teams and top 36 mid-majors in reverse power ranking order.  We’ll break down rosters, transfers, incoming freshmen, non-conference schedules, and pick a player to watch for each team.

Despite dominating the WAC in their swan song season, the Nevada Wolfpack missed out on the NCAA Tournament last year since they were upset in their conference tourney.  Now David Carter’s team transitions to the Mountain West Conference where the level of competition certainly picks up.

Nevada has Sold Just 10 of Their Hawaii Bowl Tickets

Who wouldn’t want to go Hawaii for their college football bowl game? To spend the holidays in paradise? Well, the Hawaii Bowl is on Christmas Eve, and it is one of the lower tier bowl games, so I can see why some would be turned off.

And airfare from the mainland to the 50th state for the holidays runs about  $1,500—$2000 person. Ok, that’s pretty steep! But the University of Nevada has sold a whopping ten tickets? TEN?!

Welcome to The Sports Bank’s second annual college basketball season preview series.  Last year we looked at 99 teams in 99 days.  This year, we are being slightly more aggressive and expanding to 111 teams in 111 days.  We will rank the 74 power conference teams and top 37 mid-majors in reverse power ranking order.  We’ll break down rosters, non-conference schedules, and pick a player to watch for each team.

With all five starters back from last season, the Nevada Wolfpack are in a position to capitalize on a likely down year from Utah State and win the WAC.  That would certainly be considered “going out with a bang” as it is their final year as part of the conference before moving to the Mountain West.
