Nevada Wolf Pack (3-0, 1-0 away) vs. Pacific (0-2, 0-1 home)

NCAA Basketball:  Saturday, November 18th, 10:00 pm EST

The Wolf Pack of Nevada head to Pacific in a battle of West Coast teams.  Nevada plays in the Mountain West  where they figure to be one of the contenders while Pacific plays in the West Coast Conference where they don’t figure to contend.  The Wolf Pack have been very impressive in their third season under head coach Eric Musselman.  They have started 3-0 and have looked good in every game, including their latest, a 93-63 win over Santa Clara.

The Tigers have started off 0-2, losing at Stanford and then at home to  UC Davis.  They overcome a 20 + half-time deficit at Stanford to come back and make it a game, but they looked feeble against UC Davis.  They put up 50 plus points in the second half versus Stanford and then only muster 58 points total in a 62-58 loss at home to Davis.

Nevada starts 3-0

Nevada has started 3-0 and each win has been very impressive.  They started off with two home wins, beating Idaho by 24 points, 88-64.  They came back and put up 88 points again in a 88-81 win over a good Rhode Island team.  They then went on the road and absolutely crushed Santa Clara 93-63.  It’s not easy to beat any team by 30 on the road, making this maybe their most impressive win.

They have been led in scoring by Jordan Caroline who has been their best all around player by far.  He’s averaging 20.7 points, 9.7 rebounds, and 2.7 assists per game.  He’s doing all of that while shooting an impressive 52% from the field and 78% from the free throw line.  Three other Wolf Pack average in double figures but Caroline has been the man.

UOP opens with two losses

UOP has opened with two losses and both have been frustrating in their own way.  They were down by 20 points in their opening game against Stanford and can’t be happy about how they played, but then they came alive in the second half before falling short.  Their offense never got going in their second game, losing 62-58 to UC Davis.  They now take on possibly their toughest opponent yet.

Their best players have been Miles Reynolds and Roberto Gallinat, both who are putting up 14.5 points per game and over four rebounds per.  They are the only two Tigers averaging in double digits, and shooting has been an issue.  They are hitting only 26% of their three pointers as a team, and that’s way too low in this day and age of college hoops.

NCAAB Trends:

The Nevada Wolf Pack are:

  • 5-0 ATS in their last 5 Saturday games.
  • 10-1 ATS in their last 11 games following a straight up win.
  • 4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games.

The Pacific Tigers are:

  • 2-10 ATS in their last 12 home games.
  • 1-5 ATS in their last 6 non-conference games.

Since I started writing for this site, no team has been better to me than Eric Mussleman’s Nevada basketball team.  They are a covering machine and have been again this year.  I’m not  jumping off this bandwagon.  I’ll bet them most games this season.
