Nevada downs Bradley on the road
The Nevada Wolf Pack (7-2) picked up its first true road win of the season, tromping the Bradley Braves (4-4) 91-69, tying the Pack’s season high in points.
Sophomore Lindsey Drew had a career night with 14 rebounds, 11 points and eight assists, coming incredibly close to just the fourth triple-double in Wolf Pack history. The 14 rebounds marked a career high as Drew picked up his first career double-double. Sophomore Jordan Caroline led the Nevada offense with a career-high 23 points while senior D.J. Fenner followed him up with a season-high 21 points off the bench. Junior Leland King II set a career high with 12 points. Rounding out the Pack’s double-figure scorers was senior Marcus Marshall, who has scored more than 10 points in every game this season. Nevada had five players in double-figure scoring for the second time this season, matching the high from Iona.
Nevada got the offense rolling quickly with Caroline and Marshall racking up five points a piece to put Nevada up 12-2 with 16:16 on the clock, forcing the Braves timeout. With just more than 10 minutes to play, Caroline put a layup down to hit 10 points early in the game, putting the Pack up 21-11. Nevada kept extending its lead as Drew set a career high in rebounds and King in points, going into the half up 46-26.
The second half saw much of the same as Nevada did not give up the lead once. As career highs continued to be set and streaks were extended, the clock hit zero, giving Nevada the 91-69 win.
