The three-time WAC Player of the Year and career leading scorer in the conference, Fazekas and Nevada are making their fourth consecutive NCAA Tournament appearance. Despite their lofty record, the Wolf Pack struggled at the end of the season, losing twice to Utah State and barely getting past New Mexico State in their final four games. Fazekas is a double-double machine but too often doesn't see the ball enough in the first half. He has a talented, experienced supporting cast headed by Kemp, who averaged 23.9 points in the last four contests and shoots 41 percent - as does the team - from 3-point range. Sessions needs to take better care of the ball, having committed 21 turnovers in his last four contests. Shiloh, Nevada's best defender, sat out the WAC title game with a hamstring injury but is expected to be ready for the opener against Creighton. NEXT GAME: Friday vs. (10) Creighton at New Orleans
