Nevada Starts Off Conference Play with Blow Out of SJSU

Posted: Updated:

With a 25-point advantage, the Nevada Wolf Pack (12-2, 1-0) defeated the San Jose State Spartans (7-5, 0-1) Wednesday night to open up Mountain West play.

Senior Marcus Marshall led the way for Nevada with 25 points, the second straight game the transfer has put up that many points. Sophomore Leland King II stepped up in a big way to record his first career double-double with 13 points and 12 rebounds. The 12 boards set a career high and led the Wolf Pack. Continuing a trend this season, the Wolf Pack put four players in double-figure scoring with Marshall, King, senior D.J. Fenner (14) and sophomore Jordan Caroline (13). Sophomore Cameron Oliver put up 10 boards and came just one point short of a double-double. He also led the team with two blocks.

Things got off to a slow start for both teams as the Pack held onto a 13-10 lead with 11:38 left in the first half. The Spartans were forced to call a timeout with 10:32 on the clock as Nevada had built a 6-0 run. Marshall would hit a deep three to cap off the run at 9-0 as the Wolf Pack took a 20-10 lead. The Pack continued to lead, not letting SJSU get any close as they entered the locker room up 40-29 at the half. 

The second half was all Nevada as the Pack went on to win 80-55 behind the strong performances of Marshall and King II.

Nevada will hit the road for its second Mountain West game of the year, taking on Fresno State in a New Year’s Eve matchup on ESPN3. Tipoff is set for 4 p.m.
