Utah State 70, Nevada 54
It’s difficult to win games for any team that commits 18 turnovers but especially for Nevada.
“Didn’t play hard enough or make shots,” said a disappointed Coleman. “You don’t want to turn the ball over against a team that executes so well.”
A.J. West has been consistent all season long and tonight was no different. He tallied 18 points and grabbed nine rebounds.
Unfortunately, not all of his teammates seem to play with the same sense of urgency, which is surprising because Marqueze Coleman and D.J. Fenner were matching West’s intensity earlier this season.
Coleman and Fenner combined for nine points on 3-of-22 from the field and four turnovers.
Head coach David Carter mentioned the lack of concentration many times throughout the press conference and implied this team may be lacking leadership.
“It could be, it could be,” said a frustrated Carter.
Carter seemed very frustrated and has every reason to but he can’t control his team’s lack of shooting and unforced turnovers they continue to commit.
The clock is ticking for the Wolf Pack and it doesn’t get any easier for them because they still have yet to play against the top two teams in the conference.
