By  | 

RENO, Nev. (KOLO) The Nevada Wolf pack basketball team is returning to the NCAA Tournament for the second straight season.

Nevada received an at-large bid as the #7 seed in the south region where they will play #10 Texas in Nashville.

"I think our guys are excited as well as they should be. It's a great opportunity for us to play on a national stage again," said Nevada head coach Eric Musselman.

"It's just a great feeling knowing that to get an at-large bid it's just so hard and to think about this program and the history of this program and how few times it happens as an at-large, it's a really great accomplishment," Musselman added.

Nevada and Texas square off Friday at 1:30 PM PST on TBS.
