The Bleacher Report released a list of the "20 Best Mascots in College Basketball" this week. Alphie came in at No. 18 on the list of animated mascots.

"We are excited to see Alphie get the recognition we all think he deserves," head cheer coach Kim Anastassatos said. "He has represented Nevada at thousands of games and community events. Being the oldest mascot for the Wolf Pack, Alphie has paved the way for the success of Wolfie Jr."

Wolfie Jr. has had his share of national attention in the last several years, as the younger wolf won the 2011 Capital One Mascot Challenge and put up a good fight in a unsuccessful repeat bid in 2012.
