RENO, Nev. (AP) — Jalen Harris scored 20 points and Nevada defeated Colorado State 67-61 on Wednesday night.
David Roddy had 17 points for the Rams (9-7, 0-3), Isaiah Stevens and Nico Carvacho had 13 points apiece with Carvacho grabbing.
Nevada led 39-25 at the half, making 6 of 15 from 3-point range while the Rams were 8 of 26 overall.
The Wolf Pack led by as many as 19 points before the midway point of the second half. But after Jazz Johnson’s 3-pointer made it 52-33, Nevada missed its last eight 3-pointers and had five turnovers, allowing Colorado State to make it interesting. The deficit was just five before Johnson’s jumper with 1 1/2 minutes to go and Harris made a layup with 46 seconds remaining.
