More national press for the Pack

ESPN's Dana O'Neil (in a long column) with her take on the Wolf Pack:

"How good is Nevada?

The endless, and at times fruitless, search for good basketball continues in the western part of the country.

Today's stop: Reno, where we find an 19-3 Wolfpack rolling through the WAC with a perfect 8-0 record.

Which means what, exactly?

One thing I do know: David Carter has done a terrific job taking what Mark Fox built and continuing it.

Nevada, though, is one of those impossibly hard teams to judge. There's simply not a whole lot to look at -- an early loss to UNLV, an overtime win against Washington, a Nov. 25 loss (the Wolfpack's most recent) to BYU and a lot of average-to-bad WAC thereafter.

Carter has reliable veterans -- he starts two seniors, a junior and a sensational sophomore in Deonte Burton -- but this is a team that will remain something of a mystery until March.
