The University of Nevada's 2015, 18-game Mountain West men's basketball schedule has been released by the conference office today. This is the third year the MW will play an 18-game schedule. Nevada is still working to complete the nonconference portion of the schedule.
“The MW schedule is very challenging and it is difficult to win in this conference,” head coach Eric Musselman said. “Our coaches and players have great respect for every team in the MW and understand the task that we will face each game.”
The schedule is not final since nationally televised games have not been selected. Some games may switch from Wednesday to Tuesday or shift from Saturday to Sunday to accommodate television broadcasts. Times will also be released after the television schedule has been determined.
The Wolf Pack will play eight home-and-home series and two one-time games again this season. Nevada will play just one game at San José State and host the defending co-MW Champion San Diego State Aztecs just once.
The Pack begins MW play at New Mexico on Dec. 30. Eight games in January are split between four road and four homes games. Wyoming comes to Lawlor Events Center on Jan. 2 to start the home conference slate. Trips to Fresno State and Air Force follow before the co-MW Champion Boise State Broncos venture into Reno. The return trip to Wyoming is set for Jan. 20.
Back-to-back home games start with a Governor's Series matchup with intrastate rival UNLV on Jan. 23. SDSU follows giving the Pack two consecutive marquee home games on the schedule. A trip to Utah State ends January.
February begins with a game at Colorado State before two home games with Air Force and Fresno State. Road games at San José State and a second Governor's Series matchup at UNLV on Feb. 20 are followed with home games with Utah State and Colorado State to end the month.
Nevada plays at Boise State on Mar. 2 before ending the regular season at home with a Mar. 5 game with New Mexico.
The MW Championship is Mar. 9-12 in Las Vegas at the Thomas & Mack Center on the UNLV campus.
