The Nevada Wolf Pack men's basketball team will honor its two seniors, Malik Story and Keith Fuetch, on Wednesday night before tip-off of the final regular season home game of the season at Lawlor Events Center against the New Mexico Lobos.
For Story it will be the 96th start of his three-year Wolf Pack career. The 6-foot-5 shooting guard from Pasadena, Calif., is averaging a team-best 16.4 points a game with 3.4 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 1.2 steals for the 12-15 Wolf Pack.
Story , who averaged 14.5 points a game as a sophomore and 14.1 last year, is the Wolf Pack's all-time leading 3-point shooter with 241. He's also taken the most 3-point shots by a Wolf Pack in history with 626 (his .385 success rate is 10th best). Story is also currently 10th on the Wolf Pack's all-time points scored list with 1,417.
For Fuetsch, it will likely be the first start of his four-year career. The Bishop Manogue High graduate has played in just 44 games over the past four years and has been on the court for just 229 minutes, scoring 48 points with nine steals, 20 turnovers, 21 assists, seven 3-pointers, 11-of-19 on free throws and 15 rebounds.
The Wolf Pack beat Louisiana Tech, 79-69, on Senior Night last season to improve to 8-2 over its last 10 home farewell parties of the year.
