Nevada plays the Utah State-Hawai’i winner Friday at 5.

It was a bittersweet victory for the Nevada’s men’s basketball team Thursday afternoon.

Nevada carved up Idaho 88-56 in a quarterfinal game, but lost starting guard Kyle Shiloh for the rest of the tournament and possibly the rest of the post-season with a left hamstring injury.

Shiloh apparently slipped on the WAC sticker at center court, and Nevada coach Mark Fox was unhappy about the fact the sticker was even out there.

“They put those stickers on the floor and put kids at risk,” Fox said.

“I lost a very key player. He’s probably done for the week.”

Nevada plays the Utah State-Hawai’i winner Friday at 5. The game will

be carried live on Channel 21.

The 28th win tied a school record set back in 1945-46. Nevada is 28-3

overall.

KAME, My 21 will rebroadcast the game at 10 p.m. tonight. My 21 can also be seen on Charter Cable’s channel 7.

UNR’s women’s team will play at 1:30 p.m. Friday against New Mexico State in the semi-final game of the tournament.
