Nevada Making Its Presence FeltWeekend Spotlight
Nevada is sure proof of a changed West Coast landscape this season.
Look down the current RPI rankings, and you’ll see a trend. You’ll see the usual suspects from the Pac 12 with Stanford and Oregon State leading the way, while Arizona is beginning to make a move. But after that? There are no Big West teams of note, namely Cal State Fullerton or Long Beach State, and there are also no West Coast Conference teams. However, you’ll see a pair of Mountain West teams hovering in the late 30s and early 40s. UNLV and Nevada.
