Nevada-San Francisco game Thursday night to air on Nevada Sports Net

The Nevada basketball team’s road game at San Francisco on Thursday night will air on Nevada Sports Net.

The Wolf Pack plays at War Memorial Gym at the Sobrato Center in its fourth game of the season. NSN will pick up the Stadium broadcast, with a 7:30 p.m. tipoff scheduled.

This is a rematch of last year’s game between the teams, an 85-60 USF win at Lawlor Events Center. The foes were scheduled to play at USF in 2020-21 but the game was canceled due to local COVID-19 ordinances and moved to this season.

Nevada (1-1) plays at Santa Clara on Tuesday and will stay in the Bay Area for its game at USF (3-0), which has wins over LIU, Prairie View A&M and Davidson. USF was picked to finish fifth in the 10-team preseason West Coast Conference poll. It did have two preseason All-WCC players in Jamaree Bouyea and Khalil Shabazz.

The Dons also added Nevada transfer Zane Meeks in the offseason. Meeks, who played 49 games at Nevada, including 10 starts, has appeared in one game this season, scoring six points with a rebound in nine minutes. That came in the season opener. He hasn’t played the last two games.

NSN, which debuted in September 2018, is the state’s only full-time sports channel. In Northern Nevada, NSN is available over the air on channel 21; Charter channel 787 in HD or 7 in SD; DirecTV and Dish Network on channel 21; or on AT&T U-verse channel 1021 in HD or 21 in SD. The channel also can be seen from the following counties: Washoe, Carson, Humboldt, Churchill, Pershing, Douglas, Lyon, Mineral, Lassen Lander, and Eureka.
