Nevada falls to San Diego State 79-74
Jordan Caroline's monster 29 point performance on 11-of-16 shooting was not enough as Nevada fell to San Diego State 79-74 on Saturday. Viejas Arena is remains the lone gym in the Mountain West that Eric Musselman has not won in.
Caleb Martin also added 22 points and brother Cody scored 13 in the loss.
The stat that stood out the most was the rebound margin. Nevada was out-rebounded 37-30 and San Diego State repeatedly cleaned up on the glass down the stretch. The Aztecs also had extremely balanced scoring with seven players having seven or more points.
Nevada next plays on Thursday in the Mountain West Tournament at noon. They await the winner of #8 UNLV vs. #9 Air Force. That game will be played on Wednesday at 11 AM.
