BYU Game Recap

BYU Game Recap

The first game of this season ended with the Nevada Wolf Pack defeating the BYU Cougars 86-70. BYU gave us a good challenge in our first game and provided us with certain aspects of the game that we need to improve on.

We are a program that focuses on the details. Our staff charts numerous stats such as deflections, charges attempted, floor dives, etc. With each game we give out an award for the players that represented how we want to play on the offensive and defensive end. The player that wins the award will be presented with the award and can keep it until the next game. The awards for this game are as followed...
