Wolf Pack Trip To Big Dance

By  | 

Nevada still has its N-C-A-A tournamentmagic working.
The Wolf Pack made an improbable comeback in the
final 2 minutes last night, scoring the final eight points of the
game to beat eighth-seeded Texas 61-57 for their second straight
first-round victory.
Nevada fed off last year's surprising run that sent them into
the round of 16. They played with confidence, matching Texas shove
for shove, as they evened their N-C-A-A tournament record at 3-3
and tied last season's victory total.
But reaching the regional semifinals a second straight time
might take the biggest upset in school history. They will face
top-seeded Illinois on Saturday.
