Nevada Basketball makes final push to lock up top seed in Mountain West
Reno, Nev. —
With only 2 games left before the Mountain West Basketball Championship in Las Vegas next week, seeding is everything for the Nevada men's basketball team who has boasted one of the best regular season records in program history.
Senior Marcus Marshall has left his stamp on the team after sitting out last season for redshirting. In his only season with the Pack, the guard has broken the school record for 3 pointers made in a single season with 103, passing Jimmy Carroll for 95 set back in 1997. Marshall also becomes the 3rd player in Mountain West history to make 100 3-pointers in a single season.
Following the win over UNLV, Nevada’s 36-point victory is the largest by the Wolf Pack in the series. The previous high of 27 came in Reno earlier this season.
In the only game played against San Jose State this season, Nevada came out on top 80-55.
