VIDEO: Nevada Players Are Extremely Angry After Loss To Utah State
Wolf Pack players are not happy after loss.
Something happened, will we know?
The Nevada Wolf Pack were upset by Utah State, 81-76, for its third loss of the year. The Spectrum was rocking and the fans stormed the court for arguably the Aggies best win in school history.
Something must have happened as the Nevada players were not happy one bit and Wolf Pack players were upset when they said Aggie fans made contact with them while they rushed the court.
Here is video from a fan in the stadium and you can see in the middle of the screen and near the start Nevada players are leaving the court and fans get pretty close to the Wolf Pack players.
Here is a video of Nevada players (warning there is strong language)
In the video above, Jordan Caroline is seen punching a fire extinguisher glass case.
Here is another angle with players and head coach Eric Musselman animated about fans touching them.
According to KUTV’s Jake Edmonds, Nevada players and coaches are not being made available to the media.
There is a report from SportsCenter anchor Michael Eaves who said a source told him that an Aggie coach said something toward Caroline once the game end.
A source tells me that an assistant coach for Utah State yelled something at Caroline after the game and that’s what made him angry. It’s not certain at this point what was exactly said, but the source indicated that racial slurs were not involved.
Nevada athletics director Doug Knuth commented on what happened.
“We continue working closely with Utah State and the Mountain West Conference office to determine the facts of the emotional post game events. I have also been in regular communication with (Eric Musselman) and our Deputy AD who was at the game with the team.
“The hallway video shows an emotional young man responding to a highly charged game environment and a difficult loss. Our staff stepped in to support this young man.
“I appreciate (Coach Musselman) maintaining a calm demeanor and helping his players and staff through a difficult situation. Coach Muss and I will continue gathering information and working with the MW office.
“We look forward to a full review by the MWC office and will follow their lead on any needed response. Until then, we move forward. Thank you. Go Pack!”
