Nevada is 3-2 after defeating Chattanooga (2-3) 83-81 on senior Deonte Burton's 3-pointer at the buzzer.

Tonight's game was the first of four in the 2013 Continental Tire Las Vegas Classic for the Wolf Pack.  The second game is Sunday at home versus Morehead State at 3:05 p.m.

Of the Wolf Pack's five games this season four have been two-point contests.  Nevada is 3-1 in the two-point games.

Burton has scored 20 or more points in all five games this season including tying his career-high with 31 at San Francisco.  Tonight's 28 was his second highest output of the season.  Four times he has posted a game-high this season.

For the third time this season the Pack had four players score in double figures; Burton (28), Michael Perez (12), Jerry Evans, Jr. (11) and Marqueze Coleman (11).

Senior forward Ali Fall had a season-high eight points.

For the first time in four games sophomore forward Cole Huff did not score in double figures finishing with seven.  Huff did top the Pack in rebounding with seven.

Burton made two 3-pointers in the game and he needed one to move into sixth with 146 career 3-pointers made. 

Head coach David Carter is 77-60 in his fifth season leading the Wolf Pack.  Carter is two back of his mentor Trent  Johnson's (1999-04) 79 for eighth most in school history.
