We’ll get the news out of the way real quick: Jordan Caroline is coming back to school. The Nevada Wolf Pack’s second-leading scorer (17.7 points per game) and leading rebounder (8.6) announced on Saturday that after testing the NBA Draft waters and getting feedback, he would return to Reno for his senior season.

Under any other circumstances, this would be huge news. Caroline’s return (along with the returns of Caleb Martin and Cody Martin, should they also decide to pull out of the draft) would solidify our belief that the Wolf Pack are the team to beat in the Mountain West and that they can be a serious Final Four threat.
But Nevada doesn’t just release some big news and let us all sit back and digest it. Oh no. Eric Musselman and his staff, players, family, and fellow university employees go above and beyond.
We’ve seen it already with reaction videos like this and this, so naturally you knew that they’d have something in store here.
They did not disappoint. Please take a few minutes and watch all of these:

Nevada, the Mid-Major Madness staff would like in on your next reaction video. Something tells me you’ll have a couple more coming up in the next few days. Please DM or email us (firstname.lastname@example.org) and we can work it out.
