For most of this Mountain West game it looked like Boise State (14-3, 10-2 Conf) was going to buck their way to another win but Nevada (13-7, 8-5 Conf) somehow held on to make this one a game and wound up winning by a bucket. Hitting 52.6% from the floor was a big reason why they were able to come back and post the win. Desmond Cambridge JR. (Nashville, TN) had 21 points, 4 assists, and 3 rebounds to pace the winners. Grant Sherfield had a big game with 14 assists and 20 points. For Boise State, Derrick Alston JR. (Houston, TX) had 23 points, 5 boards to go along with 3 assists. Coming off of the bench to score 19 points and pull down 4 boards was Emmanuel Akot (Winnipeg, MB).
