Welcome to another Tuesday, folks. We have a lot of news to keep you updated on. We have links to Spring football, MW baseball, offseason basketball, and an update on Boise State baseball’s stadium plans for next season.
Boise State, who will start playing in 2019-20, has started up talks with the Boise Hawks about sharing a stadium again. The Hawks seem interested in getting a deal done with the University and believe it will be beneficial for both parties . The stadium is estimated to cost $50 million and be built by Greenstone Properties.
With Eric Musselman gone and most players having graduated, who still plays basketball for Nevada? NSN has you covered. As of right now Jazz Johnson is the only notable player currently committed to play for the Wolf Pack next season. Jordan Brown, Lindsey Drew, KJ Hymes, Jalen Townsell, JoJo Anderson, and Nisre Zouzoua have all entered the transfer portal while Jalen Harris is committed to play at Nevada he would still need a waiver to be eligible next season.
UNLV shortstop Bryson Stott is your player of the week. Stott led the Rebels with a .533 batting average while slugging 1.000 with 15 total bases. Stott led a come from behind win against Arizona State while reaching base safely in all 6 plate appearances. Fresno State’s Ryan Jensen is your MW pitcher of the week. Jensen threw a complete game shutout against Air Force while striking out 14 batters and only allowing 3 hits. Fresno State won the game 6-0.
After a season in which he played minimal minutes, Aztecs forward Ed Chang will transfer from the program. Chang will have to sit out next season but will have three years of eligibility after that. Chang was a 4 star recruit according to ESPN and a late edition to the Aztecs last recruiting class but defensive struggles were the main reason he rarely saw playing time. Chang appeared in 13 games for the Aztecs and the program wishes him the best wherever he ends up.
