Nevada vs. Washington: Wolf Pack outlast Huskies in 76-73 win

US PRESSWIRE

The Washington Huskies bench struggled and the team's second-half comeback try wasn't enough, as the team fell 76-73 to Nevada on Saturday.

With just five points from the bench, the Washington Huskies could not go punch-for-punch with the Nevada Wolf Pack, falling by the score of 76-73 at Alaska Airlines Arena on Saturday. The loss snapped Washington's two-game winning streak.

Behind Deonte Burton's 29 points and six steals, the Wolf Pack controlled the Huskies in a road game while limiting the opposing bench to just five points. Washington's Shawn Kemp, Jr. was the only Huskies reserve to play a significant role in the game, scoring all five of the bench's points and collecting four boards.

Washington's struggles off of the bench put all the pressure on its starters in the backcourt, specifically C.J. Wilcox and Scott Suggs. The two guards answered the call with a combined 40 points and 11 rebounds, but it wasn't enough.

The Huskies once found themselves down by 18 points in the second half, but were able to rally back and threaten to spoil Nevada's upset bid. Washington shaved the Wolf Pack's lead to just one point with less than four minutes remaining, but would get no closer.
