NCAA Basketball: Nevada at Boise State Brian Losness-USA TODAY Sports

The Nevada men’s basketball Mountain West schedule was released by the conference Friday.

Subject to approval from state, county and local officials, Nevada will play an 18-game conference schedule beginning on Jan. 2 that will conclude on March 6. The remainder of the Mountain West will begin conference-play on Dec. 29.

The Pack will play nine home games and nine road games. They will match-up against each of the remaining 10 Mountain West foes — including eight teams twice and two teams just once. The opponents they will play just once include a road contest versus Air Force (Feb. 9) and a home affair versus Wyoming Cowboys (March 2).
