Great college basketball traditions: Dickie V, pep bands playing "Hey Baby," and Utah State against Nevada in the Game! Of! The! Night!. This is the third such battle this year -- remember that it was UNR that stopped USU's winning streak in this box, with the 75-57
decision that made the Aggies 5-1 when under the white-hot G!O!T!N! spotlight, that evened up the season series between the two.
This time, it's for the WAC's mantle ornament. Nevada (26-5, 15-3) is into the Tournament regardless, because they just are -- they've won 15 in a row and have done everything anybody could ever ask of them. USU would love to split the ticket and win the league title in its first year of membership, but they'll have to overcome Mid-Majority Baller Of The Year Nick Fazekas
(21.7 ppg, 10.2 rpg) and the home crowd at Lawlor. Can they, can they?
