All You Really Need To Know About Nevada
The Wolf Pack survived Texas with a wild 87-83 overtime win. They didn’t shoot all that well from three or the free throw line, but they nailed 51% of their shots. Outplayed in several ways, they managed to survive because the Longhorns didn’t come through in key situations.
They don’t turn the ball over and they’re usually amazing from three, doing a great job of moving the ball around to get the open shot. The offense can turn it on at any time.
All You Really Need To Know About Cincinnati
Cincinnati closed down Georgia State in an easy 68-53 win. They didn’t sent the Panthers to the line – they only attempted three free throws – and choked them out from the three point line. They didn’t shoot particularly well, but the defense did the job.
The Bearcats win on defense, clamping down to lead the nation in scoring margin. They’re terrific at blocking shot and great on the boards. They do all the little things right with an air-tight style that lets other teams screw up.
What’s Going To Happen
Can the Nevada offense overcome the Cincinnati pace and defense? The Wolf Pack are able to score in bunches, but the Bearcats have a way of making teams play at their pace.
They’ll slow it down just enough to get out alive. Get ready for Jarron Cumberland – who went for 27 against Georgia State – to control the game.
