Nevada outrebounded CSUSM by a season-high 18.  It is the third game in a row the Pack outrebounded an opponent by double figures.

Story made two of his seven 3-point attempts tonight.  The two three pointers made gives him 199 for his career and he has now attempted 502.

Nevada did not trail in the game.

Deonte Burton's four points tied his season low which first occurred against Cal Poly on Dec. 11.

For the eighth time this season the Pack bench outscored its opponent, 50-34.  The 50 points off the bench is a season high.
