Nevada vs Boise State Recap: Broncos demolishes short handed Wolf Pack

The Wolf Pack were no match for the Broncos offense as Boise State crushes Nevada.

It was a demolition from start to finish.

The Wolf Pack (8-18, 4-10 MW) had no answers for a Boise State team that was firing on all cylinders on offense as the Broncos (20-7, 10-4 MW) easily handled the Wolf Pack 78-46.

The Wolf Pack were already in a hole before the game started as the team announced that starting point guard Marqueze Coleman and backup forward Kalieb Rodriguez were suspended indefinitely by head coach David Carter for violating team rules. And before the game started, the Wolf Pack were down two players.

And then the game started and the situation got even worse for the Wolf Pack.

The Broncos went on a 18-2 scoring run early in the first half to take a 22-6 lead and for the rest of the game, Nevada posed no real threat to cut into the Boise State lead as the Wolf Pack's eight first half turnovers led to 19 Boise State points and the Broncos led at the half 44-26. And from there, the Broncos dominated.

Nevada did not help themselves by starting slow early in the game as the Wolf Pack started 2 for 11 from the field and for the game shot only 36 percent from the field.  The Wolf Pack's 46 points scored was the second lowest total of points this season. They scored 42 points back on January 14th when they were thrashed by Colorado State by 56 points.

The Wolf Pack season has gone from bad to worse now between the back to back poor performances against Wyoming and now Boise State and the suspensions of Coleman and Rodriguez. The question now for the Wolf Pack team is with four games left in the regular season, how will this team respond to the adversity and how will they perform going into the final part of the schedule.

The Wolf Pack's next game is on Wednesday night as they host the Air Force Academy.
