Preview: Nevada heads to San Jose State to take on the Spartans

The Spartans and the Wolf Pack face off in their only matchup of the season

Lance Iversen-USA TODAY Sports

The Nevada Wolf Pack and San Jose State Spartans square off tonight at Event Center in San Jose.

Nevada (15-9, 7-5 MWC) is coming off an overtime battle against Fresno State that saw the Wolf Pack come out victorious 77-72. Freshman Cam Oliver exploded for Nevada, scoring 20 points and grabbing 24 rebounds. Oliver had a historic performance for the Wolf Pack, as he grabbed the most rebounds in a game since Edgar Jones in 1977, and was the first player to have 20 points and 20 rebounds since Ric Herrin did so in 1991.

San Jose State has once again struggled this season, as they sit at 8-17 (3-10 MWC). They are coming off a loss to New Mexico, a game where only forward Frank Rogers scored in double digits. The Spartans struggled shooting the ball, as they only shot 30.4% from the field, and 26.7% from deep.


The Spartans have really struggled on offense this season, while Nevada has excelled defensively. I think the Wolf Pack win this one easily, 75-58.
