Reading up in the Reno papers recently, it appears as if the University of Nevada will be trotting out a particularly strong basketball team in the future - at least on paper.
The Wolf Pack recently signed guard Joey Shaw from the College of Southern Idaho. The team is also prepared to suit up talented forward Luke Babbitt to go along with other pieces to the Wolf Pack roster.
Center JaVale McGee could test the NBA as he is long and rangy with nice ability. But lets say hypothetically that he comes back. We're talking about a center that has player of the year potential. The team already has Brandon Fields and Armon Johnson in the backcourt.
The key will be the possible return of McGee and the development of one, maybe two of their players. They could also use a plugger in the middle to rebound and be a presence inside. While McGee does impress, he doesn't board as well as he should.
Regardless, the Wolf Pack look like a dangerous team in the future for the WAC.
