Nevada is now averaging 89.5 points per game this season

Kendall Stephens and Josh Hall combined for 45 points as Nevada handled Pacific 89-74 on the road Saturday night.

Nevada used a 24-10 run to close out the first half to lead the home Tigers 41-28 at the break. The remainder of the game wasn’t close, as Pacific failed to claw within 12 at any point the rest of the night.

Josh Hall had a career-best 25 points off 8-12 shooting, including drilling seven of 10 attempts from beyond the three-point line. Hall, Stephens and Caleb Martin were a combined 15-24 from deep in what was another terrific offensive performance for the Wolf Pack.

Nevada’s spacing and ball movement remains difficult to stop, as the Wolf Pack dished out assists on 17 of its 27 made field goals. Eric Musselman’s squad is now averaging 89.5 points per game on the season.

With a 3-0 week that included an impressive home victory Monday over Rhode Island, the Wolf Pack will wait to see if its name will be on the AP college basketball top 25 ballot this week. The Mountain West has not had a team ranked in the top 25 since March of 2015.

Next up for Nevada is a Tuesday night matchup against Davidson at home at the Lawlor Events Center.
