Parrish signs NLI to play for Wolf Pack
RENO, Nev. – University of Nevada head men’s basketball coach Eric Musselman has signed guard Eric Parrish to a National Letter of Intent to the play basketball for the Wolf Pack starting in 2019-20. Parrish will transfer from Bossier Parish Community College in Bossier City, La. where he is beginning his sophomore season. He will have two seasons to play for the Pack.
“We are extremely excited to add Eric Parrish to our program,” Mussleman said. “At 6-6 and the ability to play and guard multiple positions, he fits perfect with our style of play of position-less basketball. He has an extremely athletic first step and is explosive off the bounce with the basketball. We feel he is the type of player that can fill up the stat sheet in multiple areas and affect the game in a variety of ways. He will be a player that Wolf Pack fans love to watch with his energy.”
In his first three games this season for Bossier Parish he is averaging 15.7 points, nine rebounds, and four assists. From the field he is shooting 41.7 percent and 83.3 percent at the free throw line.

Parrish, a 6-6, 195-pound guard, played his freshman season at Akron where he made 21 starts and appeared in all 32 games for the Zips. He averaged 8.8 points, 4.7 rebounds, and 1.4 assists in 27 minutes per game. From the field he shot 51.7 percent, 32.4 percent from behind the arc and 62.1 percent at the free throw line.

A native of Cypress, Texas he played his prep basketball at Cypress Springs High School where he averaged 18.4 points, 8.2 rebounds, three assists, two steals and 1.6 blocks per game as a senior. He scored 1,132 points during his high school career and twice was named the team’s MVP. Parrish was a two-time all-district selection and a two-time academic all-district honoree.

In its first match back in Mackay Stadium in over two weeks, Nevada (4-7-2, 1-4 MW) dropped its match against San Jose State (5-5-2, 4-1 MW) by a score of 2-1 on Friday night. Freshman Olivia Carter scored her first-career goal for the Wolf Pack’s lone score.

After not registering a shot through most of the first half, the Pack capitalized on its first opportunity. In the 41st minute, Carter sprinted down the right sideline on a breakaway opportunity and was able to drill her shot past the keeper to give Nevada 1-0 lead. The Pack took its advantage into halftime.

The Spartans were able to respond early in the second half. After a yellow card was issued to Kendall Riley, the Spartan’s Karlee Pottoroff drilled a free kick from about 25 yards out past keeper Kendal Stovall to tie the match at one.

Just seven minutes later, the game-winning goal was scored by Haleigh Wynne to make the score 2-1. That would be upheld, as the Spartan’s stood strong defensively the rest of the match.

The Pack finished with five shots, led by senior Angel Meriwether with two and one on goal. Freshman Casey Crawford also recorded a shot on goal in the contest.

The shots by both teams were an even four in the second half. Freshman Kendal Stovall finished with one save on the night.

The Pack will be back in action on Sunday back in Mackay Stadium when it battles Mountain West foe Fresno State at 1 p.m.
