Nevada Wolf Pack Quotable
“In the Mountain West, it’s hard to win on the road because of the travel,” Nevada head coach Eric Musselman said this week during an interview on CBS radio. “We’ve got a game coming up this weekend where we have to fly two-and-a-half hours to Denver, then get on a bus for two-and-a-half hours — you don’t know what the weather is going to be like between Denver and Laramie.
Wyoming Cowboys Noteable
Justin James, a 6-foot-7 senior guard, is back and leads the Mountain West in scoring with a 20.9 average. He also leads the Cowboys in rebounds (8.4), assists (4.4) and steals (1.6). He has scored 21 or more points in four straight games, including a career-high 36 in a 74-66 victory over Border War rival Colorado State last Saturday.
