My dad and I traveled to Reno the last time the Zips played out there. Great trip - fantastic arena/atmosphere. 

 

Nevada is good. I fully expect this to be our first loss by more than 5 pts. My only wish is that we fight like Tennessee State did against us for 40 minutes.

Beacon article about Jimond with a blurb about the Nevada game by Michael Beaven.  Nice to see Beaven doing some UA basketball stuff.  Did we not though just have a GT article on Ivey?

Offense has turned into everybody watching Jackson dribble around at the top of the key during the last few possessions. Need to keep moving the ball

These announcers have been unbearable. 

 

Not enough tonight. Silly mistakes, and Nevada just made more plays - so many blocks. 

 

6 pt loss to the #6 team in the country. All of our losses are by 6 or less now. As impressive as losses can be.

Had the feel of a game in March. Year 2 folks. 5 losses, 2 to ranked opponents, by a total of 18 points, shooting like crap in many of those losses. Really appreciated the defensive effort tonight. Go Zips!
