The Nevada Wolf Pack were up by two after Marqueze Coleman missed the second of his two free throws and after the rebound was grabbed by Joel Bolombay and on the next Weber State possession, Jeremy Senglin made  a three pointer to give the Wildcats  the 59-56 lead that they would not relinquish.  After a Michael Perez turnover and Tyron Criswell foul after the turnover, Bolombay hit his two free throws to give Weber State the 59-56 lead and the win.

Despite the turnover late in the game, Wolf Pack guard Michael Perez lead all Wolf Pack scorers with 15 points while Marqueze Coleman scored a season high of 12 points and has scored in double figures in all five games this season. Wolf Pack forward AJ West had an impressive game as he contributed 12 points and grabbed 14 rebounds in the losing effort.

Nevada did have a lead for most of the first half and was leading by nine at the 6:28 mark of the first half when Weber State went on a 11-1 scoring run to take the 27-26 lead at the end of the first half. For most of the second half, the game went back and fourth and eventually Weber State took a 45-38 lead when the Wolf Pack went on a 12-2 scoring run to which gave the Wolf Pack a 50-47 lead.

It was 55-54 Nevada when Marqueze Coleman was fouled by Weber State's Chris Golden and Coleman made the first free throw and missed the second one thus giving the Wildcats the chance to tie or take the lead and it was then when Senglin hit the three to permanently give the Wildcats the lead.

Senglin was the leading scorer for Weber State with 16 points while Joel Bolombay chipped in with 13 points for the Wild Cats and guard Chris Golden was the other player who scored in double figures with ten points.
