Why NEVADA Will Win

Despite the talents of Aggie guards Koby McEwen, Sam Merrill, and DeAngelo Isby, Utah State is facing a Wolf Pack team coming off a full week’s rest, have more overall talent than Utah State, and Nevada is playing at home where the Wolf Pack have won the last 13 games at the Lawlor Events Center. The Wolf Pack’s offense should be more than enough (despite the defensive inconsistences) for the Wolf Pack to defeat the Aggies and extend their home winning streak to 14.
