On Friday night, Nevada played a poor first half, couldn't seem to buy a 3-point basket, trailed by as many as 15 points -- and still beat the No. 20 team in the country pretty convincingly. The No. 6 Wolf Pack outscored Arizona State in the second half, 48-30, and went on to beat the Sun Devils, 72-66, in the nightcap of the Basketball Hall of Fame Classic at Staples Center. Nevada improved to 9-0 and remained one of the nation's 10 unbeaten teams. Arizona State dropped to 7-1 and fell from those same unbeaten ranks. The Wolf Pack's long road journey -- Nevada will go 25 days between home games -- continues Sunday against Grand Canyon. The 9-0 start is the best in Nevada's Division I era, which began with the 1969-70 season. The Wolf Pack's Jordan Caroline was named Player of the Game after finishing … [Read more...] about Comeback kids: No. 6 Wolf Pack rallies to stun Arizona State
