The University of Nevada men’s basketball team will make a minimum of 19 national television appearances this season.
Additional televised road games may be announced at a later date.
“The 19 games being televised shows the respect the Nevada basketball program gained nationally after last season,” head coach Eric Musselman said. “The exposure for the University and the basketball program will receive will be outstanding. It will definitely help in recruiting and get the University of Nevada in many homes across the country.”
The Wolf Pack is coming off a 24-14 season and CBI Championships in Musselman’s first season at Nevada. The Pack returns four starters from last season in D.J. Fenner, Cameron Oliver, Elijah Foster and Lindsey Drew. Nevada also welcomes three transfers who sat out last season in Marcus Marshall, Leland King II and Jordan Caroline. A nationally ranked recruiting class includes freshmen Devearl Ramsey and Josh Hall.
The Pack will make eight appearances on ESPN3, seven on CBS Sports Network, two on either ESPN2/ESPNU, one on ROOT Sports and one on Campus Insiders. Additionally five contests will be available on WolfPack.tv.
