3 Questions with Coach Muss 12/2/15

The Wolf Pack are coming off of a 108-57 victory over Holy Names, that featured season highs in points scored (108) and assists (29).  Next, Nevada will travel to Corvallis, Oregon to take on the 4-1 Oregon State Beavers.

 

 

3 Questions for Coach Muss

 

1.  You’re 5-2 following Monday’s win over Holy Names, what team stat jumps out at you after 7 games?

"We’re now number one in the nation in blocked shots.  Cam Oliver is one of the most talented freshman in the country and, along with AJ West, has done a great job protecting the rim for us.  We’ve also done a really good job from the foul line this season, shooting 4 percent, which ranks 59th in NCAA.  Maybe the most impressive thing has been our overall team defense, as we've held opponents to 35% from the field, which ranks 16th in the country."

 

2.  Any surprises so far this season?

"Marqueze Coleman has done a great job as a team leader, both on the floor and in the locker room.  He leads the team in scoring, but showed his unselfishness in the Holy Names game by dishing out 11 assissts and only taking one shot."

 

3.  What are your thoughts on the Oregon State Beavers leading up to Saturday’s game?

"Oregon State is led by All American candidate Gary Payton Jr..  They have 5 seniors that return and three key freshman.  The Beavers were picked by several publications to be an NCAA tournament team, and are very difficult to beat in Gill Coliseum.  They are extremely well coached by Wayne Tinkle, and are an excellent three point shooting team averaging over 7 made three pointers per game.   We must take care of the ball on the road, as OSU averages more than 8 steals per game."
