Mountain West Conference action tips on Friday as the Nevada Wolf Pack visit the Fresno State Bulldogs. Gametime is set for 11 PM EDT.
Nevada Wolf Pack
Following the program’s run of NCAA Tournament success last decade, Nevada continues its gradual decline under head coach Steve Alford. The Wolf Pack have already equaled their loss total from last season and sit 3-5 in conference play.
Nevada’s latest setback came 69-58 on Tuesday night as the Pack shot just 3-of-17 from deep vs. host UNLV. In turn, it only took an average Runnin Rebs performance to gain the double-figure win opposite a disjointed Wolf Pack offering.
However, amid the team’s current 1-4 stretch, Nevada did upset tonight’s opponent 77-73 on Jan. 21. The Wolf Pack shot 56 percent overall and turned Fresno State over 16 times to seal that conference W.
Now, traveling into hostile Bulldogs territory, can Nevada rise from its offensive downturn to gain another unexpected win over Fresno?
The Wolf Pack have scored less than 70 points in each of their three recent losses.
Nevada averages 99.9 points per 100 possessions and allows 102.4. Both figures rate among college basketball’s lower rung. The Wolf Pack shoot 43/31/76%. Opponents net 35% from deep against Nevada.
Injury update: Keep an eye on Grant Sherfield’s status for this contest. Sherfield (Foot) remains questionable after missing Nevada’s last outing. The 6-2 guard leads the Wolf Pack’s scoring effort with 18 3 Pts.
Fresno State Bulldogs
Fresno has backtracked lately after opening this season with a string of surprise wins. The Bulldogs have split their last four outings to stand 5-3 in conference play.
FSU recently downed San Jose State University 73-43 behind a solid defensive effort which limited their opponent to 37% shooting and a 4-of-23 display from deep. In turn, Fresno shot 58/66/84% and dominated the glass 31-19.
Unfortunately, for the Bulldogs, that usual defensive grit couldn’t tame the normally lax Nevada offense on Jan. 11. In a meeting that veered way off script, the Wolf Pack pushed tempo and drained 14-of-29 from deep while turning an uncomfortable Fresno group over several times.
Controlling pace is crucial if the favored Bulldogs are to gain home-floor revenge on Friday.
Overall, Fresno State averages 105.9 points per 100 possessions and allows 90.9. The team’s pace-adjusted numbers rate among college basketball’s stronger offerings. However, when opponents speed up Fresno’s #354 pace, the Bulldogs become turnover prone and their 45/33/75% shooting becomes less effective.

Free Nevada Wolf Pack vs. Fresno State Bulldogs NCAAB Betting Prediction:
This game between MWC rivals Nevada and Fresno State will come down to pace. The Pack are sloppy on both ends, but play behind the nation’s 22nd fastest tempo.
Conversely, Fresno is better all-around than Nevada, but the controlled Bulldogs panic when sped up. FSU prefers working behind CBB’s #354 pace.
During the teams’ first 2021-22 meeting, Nevada rained three-pointers from its home floor. Don’t expect hot Wolf Pack shooting again on Fresno State’s court this Friday.
Instead, look for the Bulldogs to dictate matters and prevail in a low-scoring contest where the Under total is king.
