NBA Combine Testing (Pre-Summer)

During the Summer we want our guys to love the weight room, we want them to push themselves out of their comfort zone. Before our first team weight session our strength & conditioning coach tested our guys like they were at the NBA combine. We tested Height, Weight, Wingspan, Bench, Reach, Vertical, Max Vertical, and Lane Agility. We have these numbers displayed around our facilities and we will post the comparison at the end of the summer. Our goal is for the players to see their hard work paying off.

Laser Tag

Friday afternoon for our team bonding we took the guys to play laser tag, and it was highly competitive.  The guys brought the intensity over four games and left drenched in sweat. 

 

We played different games that had various objectives forcing out guys to think fast and adapt on the spot.  Additionally, the close quarters and chaotic atmosphere demanded good communication. Communication has been one of the focal points of summer session one as we work to instill our terminology and build good habits.

 

Most importantly though, this was another opportunity to continue to gel as a team.  Working as a unit on both ends of the floor is going to be paramount for our success this season.  

 

Isaiah Joe led the overall scoring and the Red team to victory three out of the four games.

Mason Jones led the Blue team in scoring but was only able to get his team to victory in one of the four games.

Gabe Osabuohien earned the title Mr. Irrelevant having the lowest total score....

 

Stay tuned to see what's up next week.

Cody Martin NBA draft pick

With the 36th pick in the NBA draft the Charlotte Hornets selected Cody Martin. Cody was an incredible competitor who continuously put in work to improve his game. When NBA teams started calling about him we knew he had a great shot at getting drafted. Cody is an extremely versatile player who will be able to play multiple positions at the next level. After the 2017-18 season Cody tested the NBA draft waters and was given feedback on his game, he used that feedback to improve. We are beyond excited for Cody in this next step of his career. Congratulations Cody!

A letter from Hays Myers

I couldn’t be more excited to get to join Coach Musselman on his staff as Special Assistant to the Head Coach. Our last three years at Nevada we have coached some unbelievable kids and are looking forward to the next step in this journey. Being from Dallas and having gone to school at LSU in the SEC I am excited to be back in the conference! I can’t thank the Nevada community and fans enough for their support over the last three years and can’t wait to get to know the Fayetteville community and Arkansas fans. I’ve always been a southern kid at heart and can’t wait to embark on this journey in the Natural State. We have a great group of players and staff that I am looking forward to learning from and getting to know! It’s time to get this thing rolling again! Go Hogs! #WPS
