WHY NEVADA WILL WIN

Despite Santa Clara having the advantage in preparing for Nevada (the Broncos last played on Friday November 10th in their season opener against La Verne while Nevada is on a quick turnaround following Monday night), the Wolf Pack still has the edge in the talent department.

The trio of Jordan Caroline and the Martin twins combined for 65 points in Monday’s victory over Rhode Island. The Broncos do have a talented backcourt of D.J. Feagin and Princeton transfer Henry Caruso but in the end the Wolf Pack just has too much talent overall for the Broncos to try to overcome. Despite the short rest, the Wolf Pack should be able to secure the win and move their record to 3-0 on the season.

Nevada 80, Santa Clara 69
