Lobo Insider: Scouting the Nevada Wolf Pack

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.- The UNM men’s basketball team will take on the 6th ranked team in the country Saturday.


Nevada will hit The Pit floor with a 14-0 record.

The Wolf Pack is loaded with talent, including 2017-2018 Mountain West Player of the Year Caleb Martin. He averages 19 points per game. 

In an attempt to deal with the talented Nevada team, the Lobos have made some changes: running sets and they played a zone defense against Air Force.

They will still play full-court press but when they fall back into their half-court defense. The strategy helped them only give up eight fast-break points against the Falcons.

The Lobos head into the game against Nevada with a 1-0 record in Mountain West Conference play.

Game time is 6 p.m.
