The biggest question facing the Nevada Wolf Pack men's basketball team heading into the 2012-13 season was whether or not someone on the roster could replace departed seniors Dario Hunt and Olez Czyz.
Well, going into the 2013-14 season, that same question will still be tormenting the Wolf Pack.
Not many questions were answered by the Wolf Pack in 2012-13. The team lost its final eight games, 11 of its last 12 and 16 of its last 19. It won just three games after Dec. 28 and finished last in its first season in the Mountain West.
The Pack went from 28 wins in 2011-12 to just 12 in 2012-13, equaling the biggest one-season drop in victories in school history. The Pack finished last in its first season in the Mountain West, dropping a whopping 13 of 16 league games and earned the dubious honor of being the team that lost the play-in game of the conference tournament.
There is nowhere to go but up for the Pack.
That's the hope, at least.
Not all, however, was a disaster in 2012-13.
A pair of freshmen -- guard Marqueze Coleman and forward Cole Huff -- showed enough to suggest that improvement is on its way. Malik Story closed out his Pack career as the school's all-time leading 3-point shooter with 253 threes. And Deonte Burton further established himself as one of the top point guards in the west coast.
But the 2012-13 season was clearly a humbling experience for a program that has now finished under .500 in two of the last three years and has not gotten to the NCAA tournament for six consecutive years.
