Nevada Basketball Coaching for Literacy Saturday Night

Nevada Basketball Coaching for Literacy Saturday Night

Saturday, Febrary 2nd, Coach Musselman and Nevada Men’s Basketball will be joining Coaching for Literacy (CFL) in their inaugural partnership to raise awareness about the issue of illiteracy in America and to provide support for young children struggling to read in Reno.

Fight for Literacy Games are a great way to bring coaches, players, and fans together in a common cause: ensuring our children can read. 

To raise awareness about the issues connected to illiteracy, the Nevada coaching staff will wear CFL polos, green lapel pins, and wristbands.

Per the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP), 69% of 4th graders in Nevada are not proficient in reading. Nevada Men’s Basketball is doing its part to help change the stat and encouraging fans to get involved in the cause.

Fans can support young students in Reno by pledging a donation for each assist recorded by the Wolf Pack from 2.2 - 2.16. To make a pledge today visit:

Coaching for Literacy guarantees that 100% of funds raised will benefit children who take part in the literacy programming of UNR Center for Learning and Literacy in Reno.

Fans are also encouraged to sign up to volunteer in Reno by visiting  

We are excited for this event and encourage fans to come to the game and donate in support for such a great cause!
