What Went Wrong
I mean, what could you say went wrong here? A 49-point win at home is incredible. 12 different players scoring shows just how deep this Nevada team is. It’s still early so knock on wood, but so far, this is a team built for a NCAA Tournament run.
We can highlight the three-point shooting again, which has been slow in the first three games. Tonight, Nevada shot 6-20 from the three. There’s a positive to that, however. Nevada’s 30 percent shooting from the three is the best it's been in the first three games. It’s maybe slow, but the three-point game is getting there.
Nevada will stay home at Lawlor this Saturday to take on Portland. The Pilots are 3-1 after taking a 75-65 loss to Tennessee State tonight.
Tip-off is set for 7 p.m. PST, and it sounds like there was no bats in Lawlor tonight, so we might be free!
