WCSD students will have from 10-11:15 a.m. to go around to different booths on the concourse level and will then stay to watch the Nevada women’s basketball team take on Cal State Los Angeles at 11:30 a.m. The event is free.
Wednesday’s match up with Cal State Los Angeles was originally scheduled for a noon start. The time was bumped up in conjunction with the “When I Grow Up” event.

The Wolf Pack battled the Ducks to a score of 22-18 midway through the first half, as Oregon led from the start.

The game was back and forth down to the final minutes and featured a total of 17 lead changes. The Pack went ahead 75-72 with three minutes left and had several key stops down the stretch to win the game 77-73.
