Why nevada Will Win
Coming off a tough loss on the road last Wednesday against Wyoming, the Nevada Wolf Pack will rely on their strong home court advantage and good three-point shooting to knock off a Fresno State team that has played the Wolf Pack well in Reno recently.
However, the Wolf Pack easily defeated Fresno State 80-65 back on December 27th and the Wolf Pack have respond well after losing the previous game under Coach Musselman (Nevada is 20-3 after a loss under Musselman, per Chris Murray from the Reno Gazette). So, I expect Nevada to play good perimeter defense on Fresno’s guards to go along with good shooting form three from Nevada and the home crowd to propel the Wolf Pack to victory.
