Nevada sets new school record for 3's in win over Pacific
Reno, Nev. (News 4 & Fox 11) —
The University of Nevada has been fielding a men's basketball team for over 100 years. Since 1913, or more appropriately since 1986 when the three-point line was added in college basketball, there has never been a better performance for the Wolf Pack from beyond-the-arc than what was seen on Saturday in Stockton.
Nevada hit 17 of 34 shots from downtown in a 89-74 win over Pacific to move the team's record to start the season to 4-0. The previous record of 16 was set in January of 2012 against San Jose State. Ironically, the Wolf Pack nearly broke the record earlier in the week when they made 15-of-30 shots from three in a 30-point win over Santa Clara.
On Saturday, Sophomore Josh Hall led the way with seven made three's in a career-best 25 point performance. Kendall Stephens added five, and Caleb Martin had three to go along with the final two from Jordan Caroline.
On Monday before practice, the guys talked about being part of history.
