Silver and Blue Game Recap

The Sagebrushers vs Desert Wolves game ended with the Sagebrushers edging the Desert Wolves 39-35 in the two 20-minute halves played. Pack fans got a taste of what Nevada Basketball will consist of during this much anticipated season. Cody Martin paved the way for the Sagebrushers with 21 points and 4 assists while Trey Porter chipped in with 9 points and 6 rebounds. The Desert Wolves were led by freshman Jordan Brown and Jalen Townsell. Brown led the team in scoring with 11 points and 6 rebounds. The Reno native, Townsell, added 10 points which included some impressive dunks. 

The 3-point contest championship was Jazz Johnson vs Caleb Martin. Johnson made 15 3pt shots in the 45 seconds to win the contest.

The dunk competition had the crowd erupting after each high-flying dunk. Special guest judges Ramon Sessions, Kevinn Pinkney and Ethan O’Bryant were impressed with the Pack players. Jalen Townsell, Jordan Brown, Trey Porter and Jordan Caroline had their athleticism on display. Trey Porter and Jordan Caroline advanced to the championship round where Porter dunked over Coach Muss. Caroline took home the crown with his windmill 360 and reverse between the legs dunks. 

The crowd was greeted by Coach Muss in a Wolfie costume riding a motorcycle driven by his son and one of our graduate assistants, Mike Musselman.
