LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — Nevada relived last season's double-overtime loss at Wyoming by watching video of fans storming the floor every day for the past week, and even just before taking the court Saturday night.
There were no fans storming the floor this time, as No. 7 Nevada easily beat Wyoming 82-49 for its 10th straight win.
Trey Porter led the way with 14 points, and Jordan Caroline and Caleb Martin each scored 13.
RENO, Nev. (AP) — Nevada coach Eric Musselman threatened to turn off the 3-point green light after a lackluster shooting performance Saturday by the seventh-ranked Wolf Pack against Air Force.
Musselman sang a different tune following his team's 100-60 win Wednesday night over Colorado State.
"I kind of wanted to get under their skin a little bit," Musselman said. "They were having a good time tonight when they started knocking them down. They were pointing at me and laughing."
RENO, Nev. (AP) — The last time Nevada won its first 14 games in a season, the Wolf Pack played in the Far Western Conference and Harry S. Truman was president.
Jordan Caroline scored 15 points and No. 6 Nevada matched a school record set in 1951-52 by beating Utah State 72-49 on Wednesday night.
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Struggling offensively, Nevada went into halftime trailing by one in front of a partisan crowd. The Wolf Pack's seniors emerged with a different mindset.
"We just have to come out with that intensity, come out with that fire," Jordan Caroline said. "We got to play like we're behind. We got to go make a big run, and that's what we did."
LAS VEGAS (AP) — It appears the Wolf Pack has found their offensive rhythm.
Caleb Martin scored 29 points, Tre'Shawn Thurman added 22 points and eight rebounds, and No. 6 Nevada beat Massachusetts 110-87 in the Las Vegas Invitational's second championship game on Friday at the Orleans Arena.
Martin, who was named the tournament MVP, finished 9 of 15 from the field and 6 of 10 from 3-point range.
RENO, Nev. (AP) — Trey Porter thinks his adrenaline got the best of him during the first three games of the season.
"I'm a diabetic, so I got my blood sugar up a little bit," said Porter, who transferred to Nevada this season from Old Dominion. "It makes me kind of cranky. ... I was able to control my blood sugar (tonight). It definitely helped me out."
RENO, Nevada (AP) — Nevada coach Eric Musselman wanted to send a message about his team's 3-point shooting, especially against the zone defense.
"I think everybody is playing zone (when they play us)," Musselman said Friday night. "That's fine. I think our school record is 17 3s. I didn't know it until I grabbed the stat sheet. I would have told them to launch a few more with five minutes to go because we're two short from the record."
