What to Know

The Nevada Wolf Pack and the Air Force Falcons are set to square off in a Mountain West matchup at 11 p.m. ET Feb. 3 at Lawlor Events Center. The Wolf Pack are out to keep their 11-game home win streak alive.

Nevada was able to grind out a solid win over the San Diego State Aztecs on Tuesday, winning 75-66. Among those leading the charge for Nevada was guard Jarod Lucas, who had 26 points.

Meanwhile, Air Force came up short against the Boise State Broncos on Tuesday, falling 59-52. Guard Ethan Taylor had a pretty forgettable game, playing for 34 minutes but putting up just four points on 2-for-10 shooting.

Nevada is the favorite in this one, with an expected 11-point margin of victory. They have been good against the spread at home while Air Force has been good against the spread on the road, so something will have to give.

The Wolf Pack are now 17-6 while the Falcons sit at 12-11. A pair of stats to keep an eye on: Nevada enters the contest with only 10.7 turnovers per game on average, good for 22nd best in college basketball. Less enviably, Air Force is stumbling into the game with the 40th fewest takeaways in college basketball, having accrued only 11.3 on average. So the cards are definitely stacked against Air Force.
