Washington Vs. Nevada Score Update: Huskies Lead Nevada 29-27 In Sloppy Game At Halftime

The Washington Huskies turned the ball over 12 times and C.J. Wilcox, their leading scorer is scoreless, yet the team is up by two points against the Nevada Wolf Pack at the half. 

Nevada has succeeded in slowing the pace and forcing the Huskies to play in the halfcourt offense. The Huskies initially struggled offensively, failing to get off open shots and constantly turning the ball over. Washington's backcourt of Abdul Gaddy and Tony Wroten Jr. have combined for seven turnovers in the first half.

At the same time, the Huskies struggled mightily to stop Wolf Pack guard Deonte Burton. Burton scored nine points and has gotten to the free-throw line ten times, though he's 50 percent from the charity stripe. 

Washington has been able to stay competitive with four three pointers. Gaddy and Ross both hit two three-pointers each. 

If the Huskies can get C.J. Wilcox some open shots and their guard play reduces turnovers, then they'll be able to extend their two point lead. Nevada needs to keep the pace of the game slow in order to have a shot to pull off the upset.
