The Wolf Pack were awarded the seventh seed in the tournament in the South region and will face off against the tenth seeded Texas Longhorns of the Big 12 on Friday in Nashville.
This is the Wolf Pack’s second straight trip to the NCAA tournament and this trip will have them traveling to the Music City. They will take on a Longhorns team that finished with a 19-14 record and a 8-10 record in the Big 12 conference.
The Longhorns are coached by Shaka Smart who is in his fourth year in Austin and the players to watch out for are Dylan Osetkowski (13 ppg, 7 rpg) and Mohamed Bamba (12 ppg, 10 rpg)
The time and what channel Nevada’s matchup against Texas will be determined later today.
