The Skinny: The Wolf Pack made the Sweet 16 last year and had a shot at advancing before losing a lead against the team that captured everyone’s hearts, Loyola Chicago. Nevada improved its defense this year and added Portland transfer Jazz Johnson. Of concern is the Achilles injury that caused Jordan Carolina (17.3 ppg, 9.6 rpg) to miss the Mountain West tournament semifinal loss to San Diego State. The 58 wins over the past two seasons is the best in Nevada history. All five starters are transfers.
