Why Nevada Will Win

Idaho guard Victor Sanders is an elite scorer and an immense threat from deep (43.9%), but Nevada has enough length on the perimeter to limit his damage. The Vandals don’t have athletes like Jordan Caroline in the post, so the junior forward should enjoy a stellar opener. With Caleb Martin’s status up in the air due to a turf toe issue, look for Elijah Foster to get a decent amount of looks Friday night.
