Nevada head coach Eric Musselman had a special message for Golden State Warriors center JaVale McGee after the Wolf Pack beat the Texas Longhorns in overtime on Friday, 87-83:

We got your back @JaValeMcGee! Go Pack! https://t.co/BxFOJA2U4a

Here's the backstory: McGee and Kevin Durant had a bet in place before their alma maters, Nevada and Texas, respectively, battled in the NCAA tournament on Friday. McGee outlined the parameters of the bet earlier in the week:

Javale McGee @JaValeMcGee

The BET: texas wins i wear a onesie to a game, nevada wins @KDTrey5 wears a fanny pack of my choosing to a game.... @NevadaHoops pleeez dont let me down!

It isn't the first time McGee has used wearing a fanny pack as punishment for losing a bet. In November, Steph Curry was forced to rock one after Nevada beat his alma mater, Davidson, during the regular season:
