Last night a few WAC staff members made the trip over to Fort Collins, CO to watch the Nevada Wolf Pack play the Colorado State Rams, in a WAC versus MWC clash.

The trek to Fort Collins took us about two hours....the traffic in Denver is horrible starting at 4pm (our departure time). We made it safely and dined at the original C.B. & Potts. Which I have to admit is a really fun restaurant. Good food, lots of TV screens featuring sporting events and it was close to Moby Arena home of the Rams.

When you walk into Moby Arena you are over come with green...the seats are green, some of the walls are green, the students are wearing green and some of the walls are painted to look like ram horns. There is even a hanging ram feature that lights up during time outs. Apparently it used to blow smoke out of its nose....unfortunately this did not happen during our visit.

There were about 2,500 Ram fans and only a handful of Wolf Pack fans in attendance.
After starting off slow the Wolf Pack would take and sustain the lead with 10:08 remaining in the first half. The Rams came within four points of the Pack in the second half, but that is as close as they could get to the Pack.

Several players for Nevada made key contributions to the Pack's victory. Joey Shaw had 21points and two assists while teammate Armon Johnson tallied 23 points and five assists. Luke Babbitt and Lyndale Burleson contributed 13 points each.
