#5 Nevada Wolf Pack (7-0)

@ USC Trojans (5-2)


Current odds:

Nevada Wolf Pack: (-250)

USC Trojans: (+200)


The line for the game is Nevada by 5.5 points.

The Wolf Pack leads the Mountain West in scoring with an average of 90.1 points per game and have won every game by double digits with an average scoring margin of 21.1 points. Martin leads the team in scoring (21.0) despite not scoring a point in the first half of wins over BYU (86-70) and Pacific (83-61) and is also averaging 4.7 rebounds and 2.7 assists per game while shooting 38.1 percent from 3-point range. Senior forward Jordan Caroline is second in scoring (17.7) while also grabbing a team-best 9.9 rebounds per game while junior guard Jazz Johnson (12.7) and Cody Martin (10.1), Caleb’s twin brother, also are averaging double figures.

Trojans coach Andy Enfield said its 50-50 whether explosive 6-6 freshman guard Kevin Porter Jr., projected as a likely NBA lottery pick, will play after missing the last two games with right quadriceps contusion suffered in a Nov. 20 win over Missouri State. “Porter can score it, he can take it to the cup, he can make step-back threes,” Nevada coach Eric Musselman told nevedasportsnet.com. “He makes shots that are kind of unguardable.” Five Trojans are averaging in double figures led by 6-10 senior forward Bennie Boatwright (16.8) followed by 6-11 forward Nick Rakocevic (14.6), Porter (14.0) and guards Jonah Matthews (12.9) and Shaqquan Aaron (11.4).
