Current Records: Pepperdine 2-6; Nevada 3-4
What to Know
The Nevada Wolf Pack will take on the Pepperdine Waves at 10 p.m. ET on Tuesday at home. The Wolf Pack should still be feeling good after a win, while Pepperdine will be looking to get back in the win column.
Nevada has more to be thankful for after their contest against the Washington Huskies last week. Nevada had enough points to win and then some against Washington, taking their game 81-62. Four players on Nevada scored in the double digits: guard Grant Sherfield (23), guard Desmond Cambridge Jr. (21), forward Warren Washington (15), and center Will Baker (10). Warren Washington's performance made up for a slower matchup against the George Mason Patriots last Tuesday.
Meanwhile, the Waves were close but no cigar this past Saturday as they fell 59-56 to the Grand Canyon Antelopes.
The Wolf Pack are the favorite in this one, with an expected 12.5-point margin of victory. At 0-2 against the spread at home, they are no cash cow. That said, Pepperdine isn't so hot on the road, where they are 0-2.
Nevada's victory brought them up to 3-4 while Pepperdine's loss pulled them down to 2-6. A pair of numbers to keep in mind before tip-off: Nevada is stumbling into the contest with the 21st most points allowed per game in college basketball, having given up 79 on average. The Waves have experienced some struggles of their own as they are 30th worst in college basketball in points per game, with only 63.1 on average. It's possible one of these Achilles' heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
