LAS CRUCES, N.M. " Nevada coach Mark Fox continues to address two concerns
- rebounding and defense - heading into Thursday's critical Western Athletic Conference game at New Mexico State.
Tip-off is 6 p.m., and the game will be televised locally on KAME.
Nevada (10-7, 2-2) needs a win to get above .500 in conference play. This is the slowest four-game start in Fox's tenure. In his previous three seasons, Nevada was 4-0, 3-1 and 4-0, respectively in its first four WAC games.
Nevada has been out-rebounded seven times this season, and is 1-6 in those games. Nevada was out-rebounded five times all of last year.
"Certainly it's a concern," Fox said during Monday's WAC teleconference. "A lot of the issues we've had tend to lean toward our inexperience."
