The Nevada Wolf Pack are heading down to San Diego where they will take on the San Diego State Aztecs on Saturday. The tip off between the Wolf Pack and the Aztecs is scheduled for 5pm and will be broadcast on CBS Sports Network.
The Wolf Pack return to action after coming off a close victory at home over Wyoming on Tuesday night. Nevada’s Jalen Harris scored on a driving layup with nine seconds left in the game to propel the Wolf Pack to victory over the Cowboys 68-67.
Unlike when Nevada lost to San Jose State on January 9th when Nevada struggled to make key plays against the Spartans, the Wolf Pack led by Jalen Harris, Nisre Zouzua and Jazz Johnson made big plays late to contribute to the Wolf Pack’s win over Wyoming.
Nevada will need those big plays on Saturday when they take on the #7 San Diego State Aztecs. The Aztecs are the only remaining unbeaten team in the nation with an 18-0 overall record after they defeated Fresno State 64-55 on Tuesday night.
The Aztecs once again boast a stifling defense this season as they lead the Mountain West in scoring defense giving up an average of 56.9 points per game. The Aztecs also lead the conference in field goal percentage defense at 36.9 percent and are second in the conference in 3PT field goal defense as they are giving up only 26.7 percent per game.
The Aztec player to watch for in this contest is guard Malachi Flynn, the Washington State transfer leads the team and the Mountain West in points and assists as he is averaging 16.6 points per game and 4.9 assists per game.
The Aztecs are one of the elite teams in college basketball this season and are once again a formidable opponent with their tough defense. Nevada will have their hands full in trying to defeat San Diego State and secure their first ever win at Viejas Arena on Saturday afternoon.
