Nevada begins play in Continental Tire Las Vegas Invitational: Nevada (2-2) hosts Chattanooga (2-2) on Friday in the first of four games in the Continental Tire Las Vegas Invitational. The Wolf Pack went 2-1 on a three-game road trip into Californian and enter Friday’s game 2-2. The Mocs are also 2-2 on the season. It will be the first meeting between Nevada and Chattanooga.
FRIDAY N7 NIGHT: Friday’s game with Chattanooga is N7 Night for the men’s basketball team and the Wolf Pack will wear a turquoise uniform. Over the past several years, the Nevada Athletics Department, in conjunction with Nike, has hosted N7 games at Wolf Pack events to honor Native Americans Heritage Month (November).
Established in 2000, N7 is inspired by the Native American ecological concept of Seven Generations. This season marks the first time the men’s basketball teams will wear a specific uniform on N7 night. Turquoise is one of the colors used to promote N7 and was chosen as the uniform color for this season’s games.
Other Nevada sports programs will also commemorate Native American Heritage Month by participating in the N7 program.
