Keith Fuetsch’s hard work has paid off.
The former Bishop Manogue three-sport star has been awarded a scholarship by the Nevada Wolf Pack men’s basketball team after making the roster as a walk-on the last two seasons.
“Keith has worked hard from the first day he stepped on the court to have an opportunity to earn a scholarship,” said Pack head coach David Carter. “I expect him to contribute to this year’s team.”
Fuetsch has played in just 14 games during his two-year Wolf Pack career, totalling just 51 minutes. He has scored a total of 11 points with two assists, a steal and three rebounds.
The 6-foot, 170-pound Fuetsch is the smallest player on the Pack roster. He is also one of seven guards on the team and would seem to have trouble getting off the Pack bench this season playing behind sophomores Deonte Burton, Jordan Burris, Jordan Finn and Jerry Evans as well as juniors Malik Story and Patrick Nyeko.
The 21-year-old Fuetsch, who played basketball, football and track at Bishop Manogue, scored all four of his points last season in an 89-69 victory over San Jose State on Feb. 5. He is 3-of-12 from the floor in his two seasons (1-of-5 from 3-point range).
