Nevada starting guard Kyle Shiloh suffered a hamstring injury in the second half of the No. 10 Wolf Pack's 88-56 win over Idaho on Thursday and could miss the rest of the postseason.

"There's a good chance of that," said Nevada coach Mark Fox. "We'll see how he feels in the morning."

Fox later toned down his assessment of Shiloh's injury, but said he did not expect him to play in Friday's semifinal game of the Western Athletic Conference tournament. The Wolf Pack (28-3) will play the winner of the Utah State-Hawaii quarterfinal round game.

Nevada is a lock to make its fourth straight trip to the NCAA tournament.

"It would be a huge loss," he said. "He's been a very good player for us."

Fox said Shiloh, a three-year starter averaging 9.6 points a game, slipped on a logo sign on the court in the second half. Fox then criticized the use of the promotional signs.

"Let that be a national statement for those stupid stickers they put on the court," Fox said. "He's probably done for the year. Let that be a statement that if you put those stickers on the floor, you put kids at risk."
