Why Nevada Will Win

The Wolf Pack will have a difficult time trying to adjust to life without Lindsey Drew who is lost for the season due to a severe injury. And the Wolf Pack going up against a talented back-court in Koby McEwen and Sam Merrill won’t make the adjustment any easier. Still, the Wolf Pack are more of a completed team and have just too many talented players for the Aggies to try to contain. I think even though McEwen and Merrill will not go 5 for 23 like they did in their last meeting with the Wolf Pack, it still won’t be enough for the Aggies to over come as the talents of the Martin twins, Jordan Caroline and Kendall Stephens is just too much for Utah State to handle.


Score Prediction

Nevada 81, Utah State 69
