Wolf Pack Dumps Vandals

The Wolf Pack got a little revenge on Saturday night, beating Idaho 69-65 in Moscow.

Luke Babbitt set a new career-high with 24 points, while Joey Shaw chipped in 15 points off the bench.

The Wolf Pack racked up 11 blocked shots, including a career-high six by Dario Hunt. Hunt has now tied Nick Fazekas' freshman record with 44 blocks.

Nevada was able to avenge a home loss to Idaho. The Vandals beat the Wolf Pack in Reno back on January 3rd.
