Coleman Pushes Nevada Past Pacific in 2OT

Posted: Updated:

It took two Overtimes but the Nevada Wolf Pack Men's Basketball team outlasted the Pacific Tigers in Stockton 85-82 on Saturday Night. 

For the second game in a row, Senior Point Guard Marqueze Coleman scored more than 30 points, backing up his 34 point performance in Tuesday mornings loss to Hawaii, with 31 points against Pacific. 

After leading for most of regulation the Wolf Pack found themselves trailing the Tigers by a point with less than 30 seconds to go. Freshman Lindsey Drew made one of two free throws to send the game to Overtime.

Nevada then held a 3 point lead in the final seconds of the first Overtime when Pacific's Ilias Theodorou made a three-point jumper to send it to a second Overtime.

In Overtime number two Coleman took over making all three of Nevada's Field Goals, while AJ West hit a pair of Free Throws with less than 30 seconds to play to put the Pack up 3. Another last gasp three point shot by Pacific clanged off the rim, as Nevada improved to (3-1) on the year. 

Coleman's 31 points pushes his season average to 24.8 points a game. Junior Guard D.J. Fenner added 14 points, while Tyron Criswell dropped in 11 points, and the "Double-Double Machine" AJ West had 11 points and 16 rebounds.

The Wolf Pack will play their home opener on Wednesday against Portland State. Tip off at Lawlor Events Center is set for 7pm.
