Coleman and Fenner Lead Nevada to Win over Santa Clara

Posted: Updated:

Senior Marqueze Coleman scored 18 points, including the go-ahead basket, and freshman Cameron Oliver added 11 points and 10 rebounds for his first career double-double as the Nevada men’s basketball team beat Santa Clara, 72-69, on Friday night at Lawlor Events Center.

Junior D.J. Fenner scored 17 points on 7-of-18 shooting from the floor, sophomore Eric Cooper Jr. added 11 and freshman Lindsey Drew matched his career-high with six assists for Nevada (8-3), which won its third-straight and improved to 5-0 at home for the first time since 2009-10.

Coleman scored five straight, including a 3-point play that put Nevada ahead for good at 70-67 with 2:26 left. Jared Brownridge made a layup to pull Santa Clara within 70-69 with 2:02 to go, but then missed a floater on the ensuing possession and was forced to foul Oliver, who made both free throws with 10 seconds left. 

In the first half, with the score tied at 33-33 and just over a minute to play, Cooper nailed his third 3-pointer of the half to give Nevada a lead again, 36-33. Senior Lucas Stivrins went to the line with a little over a second left where he made the first free throw and missed the second but got the ball back off a tip from Fenner and nailed a jumper that beat the buzzed and gave Nevada a six point lead at the half, 39-36.

Nevada trailed by two, 67-65, with 3:11 left to play in the game before Coleman took over an scored five-consecutive points. The Wolf Pack did not allow the Broncos to score its final four trips down the floor.

The Wolf Pack returns to action on Tuesday, Dec. 22, when it travels to Wichita State for a 5 p.m. game on ESPN3.
