Record attendance at season celebration dinner

On Wednesday night over 600 University of Nevada supporters attended the celebration of the men's basketball team's outstanding season and run to the Sweet 16 at the Silver Legacy Resort and Casino.  The 600 is the largest attended postseason men's basketball dinner.  Numerous standing ovations and applause accompanied each team award announcement, which was magnified when head coach Eric Musselman stepped to the microphone.
 
The Wolf Pack used two amazing comebacks to defeat Texas and Cincinnati to reach the Sweet 16 in the NCAA Tournament.  The Pack went 15-3 in Mountain West play and won back-to-back outright MW titles, just the second team in conference history to accomplish the feat.  Overall, the team went 29-8 and tied the school record with 29 victories.  The Pack spent eight weeks in the top 25 and were ranked 20th in the final USA Today Coaches Poll.
 
Musselman earned his first MW Coach of the Year honor after leading the Pack to a second regular season title.  The USBWA selected him as their District VIII Coach of the Year and the NABC honored him as their District 17 Coach of the Year.  It was the second year in a row Musselman earned the USBWA honor.
