The Nevada Wolf Pack return to action on Saturday night when they host the visiting USC Trojans. The game will tip-off at 8pm and will be on the CBS Sports Network. The Wolf Pack are taking on the Trojans for the second straight season on the hardwood. The last time Nevada played USC was last season when the Wolf Pack defeated the Trojans in LA 73-61.
Nevada is coming off a 80-73 victory over Texas-Arlington on Tuesday night in Reno. In the victory over the Mavericks, junior guard Jalen Hurts had a good performance. In his first full game back after missing the Loyola Marymount game, Harris scored 24 points (20 of those points came in the second half) to help Nevada pull away from Texas-Arlington.
Jalen Hurts was not the only Nevada player who had a good night on Tuesday. Wolf Pack guards Nisre Zouzoua and Jazz Johnson scored 16 points a piece and Lindsey Drew scored seven points and tallied eight rebounds, four assists, three steals and two blocks in the win on Tuesday night.
The Wolf Pack will need those contributions from its top players when they take on the Trojans who are 3-0 to start the season. On paper, the Trojans have the look of a team that could possibly contend for a Pac-12 championship this season with their roster of talent.
The Trojans top players to watch for is freshman forward Onyeka Okongwu. Okongwu leads the Trojans in points (17.3ppg), rebounds (10.3rpg) and blocks (3.3bpg) in the early part of the season. Okongwu is joined in the front court by senior forward Nick Rakocevic who is averaging 14 points per game and nine rebounds per game for the Trojans.
Together Okongwu and Rakocevic make up a talented front court for the Trojans. For the Trojans in the backcourt, the player to watch for is senior guard Jonah Mathews. Mathews is averaging close to 12 points per game and shooting 33 percent from the three for the Trojans.
USC is bringing in a talented and undefeated team to the Lawlor Events Center on Saturday to take on the Wolf Pack. It will be interesting to see if Nevada is up to the challenge when they take on the Trojans.
