It was officially announced on Sunday afternoon that the Nevada Wolf Pack are heading back to the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2007 after winning the Mountain West tournament championship and clinching the automatic bid to the dance on Saturday.

The Wolf Pack were given a 12 seed by the NCAA Selection Committee and will travel to Milwaukee in the Midwest region where they will play against the five seeded Iowa State Cyclones on Thursday.

The Wolf Pack will be looking for their first NCAA tournament win since they defeated Creighton 77-71 in the first round of the NCAA tournament back in 2007.

Here is Nevada celebrating.
