Nevada Wolf Pack
The first five minutes of the game went back and forth before Texas and Nevada went on runs of nine and eight respectively. Then, three shots from behind the arc put the Horns up 35-26 heading into the half. Kerwin Roach and Matt Coleman were both in double figures for Texas, while Kendall Stephens lead the Wolf Pack with eight.
In the second half, the score began to tighten as Nevada splashed multiple threes against the top ten Longhorns defense. It came down to a one point game with under one minute remaining in true March Madness fashion. Texas was called for a shooting foul with just 3.8 seconds on the clock in a one point game. Nevada hit the second free throw and Texas threw the inbound pass out of bounds with 1.6 on the clock. The shot off the pass was no good, so we went to overtime in Nashville.
The Wolf Pack got out to a two possession lead heading into the final minute. A late three-pointer by Texas with 15.5 seconds remaining made it a two point game and sent Kendall Stephens to the free throw line. Stephens made both shots to seal it for Nevada in a 87-83 win.
