The Nevada Wolf Pack happen to be having an excellent college basketball season, improving to 15-1 with a win over the San Jose State Spartans on Wednesday evening.
To help in acquiring the victory, Nevada made 13 of its 34 attempts from beyond the arc. After the game, Wolf Pack head coach Eric Musselman explained the importance of his players knowing they can shoot from distance without worrying about any form of consequence.
“These guys have a green light (from beyond the arc),” Nevada Wolf Pack coach Eric Musselman said. “Without a green light, we don’t open the game like we did tonight. We feel like the floodgates are coming, it’s just a matter of when. We’ve played 16 games and one night, the floodgates never came. The other 15 nights, at some point in the game, the floodgates came, and one time it didn’t.”
It’s a way of admitting the team lives and dies by the three, which is a very modern approach to most levels of basketball.
Caleb Martin led the way for the Nevada Wolf Pack, scoring 23 points.
