Nevada Wolf Pack Women’s Basketball TicketsThe Nevada Wolf Pack women’s basketball team brings college hoops to the Reno-Sparks area. Its colors of blue and silver are points of pride for many throughout the Silver State, even some of those situated in Las Vegas, home of rival UNLV. Nevada’s seats at Lawlor Events Center also go with that color scheme; all are blue. Meanwhile, much of its court is adorned in silver, including a drawing of the state of Nevada at center court. Many of the visiting teams that play the Wolf Pack here are members of the Mountain West Conference. Of course, games against the Rebels are highly anticipated, but those are far from the only ones that Nevada Wolf Pack women’s basketball ticketholders look forward to every season. Boise State’s visit is another. The Broncos have won four straight Mountain West Women’s Basketball Tournaments, and a win against them is always cause for celebration. The Wolf Pack came close to doing so on Jan. 16, 2019, falling in a barnburner, 75-74. Get your Nevada Wolf Pack women’s basketball tickets at StubHub.
When did the Nevada Wolf Pack women’s basketball team play its first game?The first women’s basketball game in Nevada Wolf Pack history occurred in 1899. It defeated Stanford that year. It’s been a part of the NCAA ranks since that organization started overseeing the sport in 1981.
How did Nevada’s women’s basketball team receive its name of Wolf Pack?During the 1921-22 athletic season, a Nevada Wolf Pack team had been described as playing with so much spirit that it was like it was a "pack of wolves." Initially, all Nevada sports teams were then called "Wolves," but this gradually evolved into "Wolf Pack." That new name became official in 1928.
Has the Nevada women’s basketball team ever played in the NCAA Tournament?Nevada has never played in the NCAA Women’s Basketball Tournament.

Its first was a defeat of Saint Mary’s in the 2011 WNIT. An 86-74 away win over Fresno State followed. Nevada’s historic postseason run came to an end in Conway, Ark., where the Wolf Pack lost to Central Arkansas 65-56 in the semifinal round. However, Nevada women’s basketball ticketholders’ sights are always on being selected for the NCAA Tournament.
Where is the Mountain West Women’s Basketball Tournament played?Many Nevada Wolf Pack women’s basketball ticketholders make plans to attend the Mountain West Women’s Basketball Tournament every year.

Through at least the 2023 season, this trip will entail a 400-mile drive or flight to the other side of the state as UNLV’s Thomas & Mack Center plays host to it. Nevada enters the 2021 edition looking for its first championship.
