UNLV and Nevada will meet late Sunday night for a Mountain West showdown. Both squads look to get out of the middle of the Mountain West confernce standings
Nevada has been on of the more consistent cover teams in all of college basketball this year. The Pack have covered 11 times this season, largely thanks to their ability to make timely free throws. Nevada is shooting 76.5 percent this season at the line.
Grant Sherfield is converting over 85 percent of his free throws this year and is also the team’s leading scorer. Sherfield averages 18.5 points per game for a Nevada team that averages 72.5 points per contest.
Zane Meeks, Desmond Cambridge and Warren Washington give good contributions to Steve Alford’s club from a points and rebounding standpoint. Cambridge, a transfer from Brown, averages 15 points per game while Washington and Meeks combine for 12 boards a night.
Nevada allows 67.8 points per game. They don’t allow many offensive rebounds and do a goo job of defending the paint.
UNLV Runnin’ Rebels
UNLV was projected to be a potent offensive team this year, and that has been their strength. The Runnin’ Rebels have been an up and down 3-3 in conference while averaging 73 points per game and allowing 66 points a night.
UNLV is a team that lives and dies by the three ball. Bryce Hamilton and David Jenkins Jr., can both score in bunches, but Hamilton is listed as questionable for this game.
UNLV has improved this year defensively from the last. They rack up 7.5 steals per game, but still struggle to defend the long ball as they let opponents shoot 37 percent.
UNLV makes just under 10 three pointers a game and shoots the 16th most threes per game of anyone in the country. UNLV’s chances in this game ultimately lie on whether Hamilton plays, as he leads the team in points and steals.
- Rebels are 15-32-4 ATS in their last 51 road games vs. a team with a winning home record.
- Wolf Pack are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a straight up loss.
- Wolf Pack are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games overall.
- Wolf Pack are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 home games.
Free Nevada Wolfpack vs. UNLV Runnin’ Rebels NCAAB Prediction:
I’m handicapping this game on the assumption that Hamilton doesn’t play for UNLV. Even when he is on the floor, I still feel Nevada is the better team in this spot.
