Nevada Pitcher Receives WAC Weekly Honor

University of Nevada pitcher Kyle Howe has been named Western Athletic Conference pitcher of the week.

Howe pitched five innings and allowed three runs in the Wolf Pack's 11-6 victory Sunday at San Jose State.

The junior right-hander also pitched eight innings last Monday to earn the 7-2 victory over Hawaii at Peccole Park.

Nevada is 32 and 24 this season.

The Pack will meet Hawaii in the first round of the WAC Tournament that begins Thursday night at Peccole Park in Reno.

The four-day tournament concludes with the championship game at noon Sunday.
