Not even a 22-point second-half deficit could keep No. 7 seed Nevada from advancing past No. 2 Cincinnati on Sunday.

The Wolf Pack made that seemingly insurmountable deficit disappear and rallied to win 75-73 by using an incredible 32-8 run over the game's final 10 minutes and 49 seconds. Nevada's Josh Hall put the exclamation on the finish by hitting the go-ahead bucket with 9 seconds remaining. It was the only time in the game that Nevada held a lead.

Nevada trailed 65-43 until the Wolf Pack's Cody Martin hit a jumper with to start the rally. The comeback marks the second largest in NCAA Tournament history, behind BYU's stunning feat to erase a 25 point deficit vs. Iona in the 2012 First Four.

The Wolf Pack will face Loyola-Chicago in the Sweet 16 on Thursday.
