Coming out and making a statement, the Nevada Wolf Pack (2-1) took down the Oregon State Beaver 83-58 (2-2) Friday night. 

The 25 point win gave Nevada its biggest win over a Power 5 school since defeating the Oregon State Beavers by 28, 75-47, on Nov. 15, 2006. The Wolf Pack saw four players hit double digits in the score column for the second straight game in sophomore Cameron Oliver (24), senior D.J. Fenner (17), sophomore Jordan Caroline (12) and senior Marcus Marshall (11). Caroline recorded his first double-double of the season with 12 points and 12 rebounds. His 12 rebounds were almost the most of any Pack player this season. Oliver’s 20 first half points were a career best for the sophomore phenom. Oliver and Fenner got their scoring going early, setting season highs in just the first half. Nevada hasn’t given up the lead in two games.

The Pack got off to a hot start behind Oliver, who had racked up 11 points with two dunks in the first 10 minutes, putting Nevada up 22-10 with 10:32 to play in the first half. Oliver became the first Wolf Pack player to hit 10 points in the first half this season. Fenner joined him quickly, helping to put the home team up 24-17 with his 12 points at 5:21 on the clock. Nevada’s dominance went all the way to the buzzer with Marshall hitting a deep three as time expired to send the Pack to the locker room up 48-25.

As more Pack players continued to hit the 10 point mark, Nevada kept the Beavers at bay, taking a 59-32 with 15:32 to play. Caroline earned his first double-double of the season with his 10th rebound as Nevada led 61-34 with 13:42 left in the game. Oliver continued to contribute in the second half, surpassing 20 points. It was the sophomore phenom’s seventh career game with 20 plus points and the sixth game of the last 11 dating back to last season. The Wolf Pack would hold onto the lead all game, defeating the Oregon State Beavers 83-58.

Nevada will be right back at Lawlor Sunday at 5 p.m. against the Iona Gaels for the first round of the Great Alaska Shootout.
