university of nevada campus. administrators say the nearly 45-million dollar building will help improve student engagement -- helping them earn their degrees. the 78-thousand square-foot building is located where getchell library once stood. it offers several student services under one roof -- that used to be scattered around campus in six different buildings. things like the math and writing centers, tutoring and advising centers, and veterans services. derek "because there's so much stuff there for students to use, that's probably what they're most excited about, seeing computers available and collaboration rooms for them to work in. that's something that they're really excited about seeing." the new building has two state- of-the-art classrooms -- and offers a place for students to collaborate, study, or relax. it even has a meditation and reflection room -- and a couple sets of social stairs for students to congregate. the reno bighonrs sit a top the standings as the season is
"now, here's sports director garrett dearborn, with channel 2 sports" the golden state warriors were looking for win number 50-tonight in atlanta...a big number because it would be in 55-games....the fastest run to 50 in nba history. but right when they were going to put things on cruise- control...the hawks gave them a run in atlanta tonight. item: 3rd qtr, warriors up 21 curry drives the lane for the easy layup he had 36-points, 8-rebounds and 8-assists...the warriors are cruising...up 70-47 warriors ================================ ==== ================================ 3rd qtr, hawks go on a massive run!!! 2 highlights al horford...horfor d with 23-points 16-rebounds... hawks close the 3rd on a 28-6 run!!! score: 76-75 warriors after 3rd quarter ======================== ============ =============================
warriors' klay thompson gets the pass and he drains the 3...he had 27 score: 84-82 warriors ================================ ==== ================================ at 50-5 the warriors are the fastest team to 50 wins in nba history 102-92 ...the record 72-win bulls started the year 49-6 in 199-96 through 55 games the reno bighorns are one of the best team's in the nba development league this season...if you need proof check out the top of the western conference standings...dallas colodny went out to practice this afternoon, and found out why. when you go to a reno bighorns game you can pretty much expect them to break the century mark every time out. they are averaging 122 points a game this year... which is actually down from 134 points a game last season... either way that is still a lot of points because in
the sacramento kings average 107 points a game. but the bighorns have already eclipsed last season's win total and the guys say their improvement has come on the defensive end. "we have just become a lot more clear and consistent in what we are going to do and i think that helps with the buy in from the players they like to know exactly how we are going to defend certain actions. we have also scrapped the press this year so we have just given up a lot less uncontested shots at the rim which has certainly helped our defense." "i think that has really made the difference this year. last year we scored a lot of points, this year we score a lot of points but this year we keep the other team from scoring points too and you see the difference in our record." while most of these guys obviously want to get to or back to the nba, they say while they are down here in reno in the d-league they try and compartmentalize their goals and are hoping for a d-league circumstances there are. we just need to stay focused take it one day
everyday." "definetly, when you come down here, you got to focus on defense and the individual parts of your game. like i always said the nba will see it and if they want you they will call you. we have a lot of fun on the court together smiling laughing joking around... so it makes the team easy to play for and easy to play with i think that is why we are winning we are having a good time." the bighorns will look to extend their western conference lead tomorrow morning when they host the erie bayhawks at 11am dallas
