Nevada Wolfpack (Overall: 25-6, Conf: 14-4)


College Basketball News and Previews


Team Strengths:

The Wolfpack could easily heat up from the outside, as they drain 38.5% of their three-points shots, 33rd best in the nation. They knock down 9.2 threes per game, which speaks volumes about how dangerous the offense of this team is. In addition, Nevada has five players averaging in double figures so defending against the Aggies can’t be predicated on stopping just one star player. As a team, Nevada is 38th in the nation with 80.0 points per game and 34th in KenPom’s adjusted offensive effiency with a rating of 114.5.

Team Weaknesses:

Sure, the Wolfpack have five players averaging in double figures in scoring but all those players are starters. How about the bench? The Wolfpack’s bench is almost bare with Lindsey Drew topping the second unit with just 5.9 PPG, certainly not the type of number to send chills down their opponents’ spines.
