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
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.
