Make Your Teammates Better

Before every practice, the team watches film, not just on themselves or upcoming opponents, but also on NBA games from the night before. There are usually 3-5 clips of how NBA teams, like the Golden State Warriors and Boston Celtics, share the ball on offense. "We have to be a team that plays for each other," Coach Musselman said, "Every time we step on the floor, it is to play for the guy next to you. Watching professionals on film, consistently give up a good shot for a great shot helps reinforce that mindset every day."

However, it’s not just on the offensive side of the ball where Nevada coaches preach teamwork and unselfishness. Coach Musselman and his staff believe strongly in having everyone talk and communicate on defense. When the opposing team is taking the ball out from underneath their own basket, all five Pack players are yelling, "Engage! Engage! Engage!" Every possession down the floor, Nevada defenders are calling out screens and how they’re defending the post.    

Dating back to the very first day of practice, talking on defense has always been a major emphasis and high priority. It signifies trust in knowing that when a teammate hears a certain terminology called out, they are going to be there to help you defend that action.

Coach Musselman also shows film of our bench celebrations after a game. In order for Pack players to play to their fullest potential, they have to know that the whole team is behind them. It is each player’s responsibility to be the biggest cheerleader on the bench, and give nothing but confidence to their teammates.

Off the floor, Nevada also embraces a culture of being a great teammate. "We hold each other accountable to do the right things and act the right way 24/7," said Coach Musselman, "When one player messes up at Nevada, we have other players helping him out. We are a family here, and we’ll do whatever it takes to get this done for everybody."

Coach Musselman Donates Tickets to Local Heros

Nevada men's basketball coach Eric Musselman has purchased 2,500 tickets for Saturday's Wolf Pack football game and is donating the tickets to heroes in the Northern Nevada community.

Friday is Veteran's Day and Saturday's Nevada football game against San Jose State is Nevada's annual "Heroes Day" game. The 2,500 tickets from Musselman are available to any local military members, first responders, and teachers in our community.

"Our family feels that it is extremely important to give back to the community of Northern Nevada, especially to those that have served in the military, our first responders, and teachers in the community," Musselman said. "These individuals are the backbone of our community and it is an honor to recognize them for everything that they do for our community. It should be a great day for football Saturday afternoon -- let's all support the Wolf Pack."

With Friday a holiday, the Wolf Pack Ticket Office will be closed during the day and will open at 3 p.m. for the men's basketball game set for 7 p.m. at Lawlor against Idaho.

Any member of those groups can simply call the Wolf Pack Ticket Office at (775) 348-PACK to get their free tickets while supplies last.
