RENO, Nev. – The Wolf Pack athletic department and Nevada Sports Net announced a nine-game broadcast schedule of men’s and women’s basketball games that will air on NSN this season.

The Wolf Pack men’s basketball team’s non-conference games against Pepperdine (Nov. 30), North Texas (Dec. 4), Minnesota-Duluth (Dec. 15) and Grand Canyon (Dec. 21) will be broadcast on NSN.

Additionally, five Nevada women’s basketball Mountain West games will air on NSN, including contests with Utah State (Jan. 3), San Diego State (Jan. 19), UNLV (Jan. 22), San Jose State (Feb. 2) and Colorado State (Feb. 19).

“We’re excited to bring these Nevada basketball games into the homes of Wolf Pack fans throughout Northern Nevada,” NSN operations manager Anthony Resnick said. “We know how much passion Wolf Pack basketball fans have and are thrilled to partner with Nevada athletics to put high-quality games on our network.”

The men’s games against Pepperdine, Minnesota-Duluth and Grand Canyon will feature Alex Margulies on play-by-play and former Nevada players Keith Fuetsch and Eathan O’Bryant on color commentary. Those games also will feature a 30-minute pre-game studio show in addition to halftime and post-games shows. The contest against North Texas will feature NSN picking up the game’s Stadium feed.

The Wolf Pack women’s games will include Margulies on play-by-play with color commentator Ashlee Jones, a Wolf Pack basketball alum.

NSN has already televised two Wolf Pack men’s games this season, including the season opener against Eastern Washington on Nov. 9 and the team’s road contest at San Francisco on Nov. 18. Additional women’s games could be picked up and announced at a later date.
