The Nevada Wolf Pack played well for the first half against Nebraska-Omaha despite giving up a three point shot by Omaha's Tre'Shawn Thurman at the end of the half which cut the Wolf Pack lead to 32-31.
Then the wheels fell off in the second half.
The Mavericks started the second half on a 23-5 scoring run and never looked back as the Wolf Pack lost for the fourth straight time 78-54 to Omaha on Saturday afternoon.
Nevada shot only 26 % from the field in the second half while the Mavericks were on fire shooting sixty percent from the field and shot seven three pointers in the second half. The Mavericks had all but one player from their starting five score in double figures as Thurman, for the Mavericks, lead all Omaha scorers with 18 points. Forward A.J. West was the Wolf Pack's only player to score in double figures as he scored ten points and junior forward Lucas Stivrirs came off the bench with eight points and five rebounds in the losing effort while Marqueze Coleman scored eight points.
The Wolf Pack continue to struggle on offense shooting only 32 percent from the field for the entire game and had twenty turnovers.
"It was an embarrassing loss, really. I didn't think we competed. I didn't think we executed our plan. Give them credit. They blitz us in the second half," Nevada head coach David Carter said. "We start the half with turnovers. You just can't do that against a team like that."
The Wolf Pack have now lost four games in a row since starting the season 2-0 and have only topped sixty points once during this losing streak and the team is still not playing for the full forty minutes of games this season which was the case today and during the losing streak. The Wolf Pack look to piece together a full forty minute game and try to snap this losing streak as they continue their season long five game road trip when they face the Long Beach State 49ers on Wednesday at 7pm PT.
