Around The WAC: Nevada-Reno
Signs Shilo, Fazekas To NLI's--(Nov. 14, 2002)

Bakersfield Garces Memorial point guard,  Kyle Shiloh (6'-2" Sr. PG) has signed a National Letter of Intent at Nevada-Reno.  The Wolfpack also picked up an interesting prospect in Nick Fazekas from Ralston Valley HS in Arvada, Colorado, who is a skilled big man with a very interesting style of footwork, to say the least.   The official press release issued late yesterday just about says it all, so here it is:

Kyle Shiloh and Nick Fazekas to join Wolf Pack in 2003-04.

Nov. 13, 2002

RENO, Nev. - Kyle Shiloh, a 6-2, 180-pound point guard from Garces Memorial High School in Bakersfield, Calif., and Nick Fazekas, a 6-11, 205-pound power forward from Ralston Valley High School in Arvada, Colo., have both signed a national letter of intent to play basketball for the University of Nevada in 2003-2004, it was announced Wednesday by head coach Trent Johnson.

Shiloh averaged 14.0 points and 9.8 assists per game last year for a Garces Memorial team that went 30-5 under head coach Gino Lacava. In his sophomore year as a starter on the varsity squad Shiloh helped his team to a 30-1 record.

"Kyle is a point guard in every sense of the word," said Johnson. "He is extremely quick, has great decision making skills and possesses excellent toughness."

Fazekas helped lead Ralston Valley to a 24-1 record and the semi-finals of Colorado's 4A State Tournament as a junior last season for head coach Mitch Conrad. He averaged 22.4 points, 9.2 rebounds, 3.4 blocks per game and was named the Rocky Mountain News' 4A Player of the Year. Fazekas also played on the 12-member West team in the USA Men's Youth Development Festival at Colorado Springs, Colo., in June.

"Nick has as many accolades of any player we have recruited to Nevada," Johnson said.  "He has the potential to be an oustanding player for our program."

"Both of these kids are winners, Johnson said. "It's evident by looking at the records of their teams that they are pretty good basketball players. They both have a chance to make an immediate impact."

Today marked the first day of the early signing period, which runs through November 23.
