Nevada live game thread

UH-OH — Burton hit a step-back jumper over Wilcox. Nevada 72-70, 1:35.
OVERTIME — Burton blew past Wroten and drilled a three-pointer with 4.3 seconds left to tie the game. Wow. UW 66-66.
BIG SHOT — Burton drained a three-pointer over Wroten. UW 61-60, 1:33.
FOUR ON BURTON — Burton collected his fourth foul. UW 61-57, 1:58.
GETTING GOOD — Nevada is making a run. UW 57-55, 5:50.
SLOWING DOWN — Got to slow down to write the game story. UW 55-49, 8:40.
DEPTH SHOWING UP — Feels like Nevada is wearing down, while the Huskies are getting stronger. The Wolf Pack has a strong starting five, but the bench is weak. Wilcox is starting to find his spots. UW 53-44, 10:50.
TOO MANY — The Huskies were given a technical foul because they had six players on the court. Nevada hit one of two free throws. UW 47-39, 13:00.
STILL ROLLING — The Huskies are on a 6-0 run. Simmons stole the ball, which started a fast break. Ross finished the sequence with a pass to Wroten for a layup. Feels like a critical moment in the game. The Huskies are surging. Feeling more and more confident. Wilcox has gotten open for a couple of jumpers. UW 47-38, 13:17.
SUBSTITUTION — Wroten checked for Gaddy in at his normal time and he was stonewalled on a layup. Nevada raced down court and finished the break with a dunk from Hunt. The Huskies had momentum. UW 38-34, 15:34.
COACHING MOMENT — Czyz just drained a three-pointer. The UW assistants are hopping mad. Romar called timeout and had a quiet conversation with Simmons, patting him on the chest several times. UW 36-32, 16:51.
FOUR FOULS — Gant has four fouls. He’s out. Simmons is in. UW 34-29, 17:37.
SECOND HALF — Same starters.
HALFTIME OBSERVATIONS — Got to be quick here. Had internet problems. Anyway, up-and-down half for the Huskies. They seemed to settle down and play much better late in the half. Nevada is throwing a lot of things at them defensively, including a full-court press and a 2-3 zone. Burton is a problem. The Huskies can’t keep him out of the paint. They’ve tried Gaddy, Wroten and Wilcox. UW even went to a zone and Burton still finds a away to be active and cause trouble.
HALFTIME STATS — Click here.
HALFTIME — UW 29-27.


NICE TRIBUTE — I’m trying to watch the game and keep tabs on the ESPN3.com broadcast. The ESPN crew did a nice tribute on former Husky Andrew Moritz.
OH MY GADDY — Nevada is playing zone and it is leaving Gaddy open. Gaddy is making the Wolf Pack pay. He’s attempted two three-pointers and made both of them. Big shots both. UW 27-26, 2:05.
BIG BLOCK — N’Diaye rejected a layup from Kevin Panzer. Burton blew past Wilcox and was fouled. The Huskies can’t keep him out of the paint. Nevada 26-24, 3:16.
ZONED — The Wolf Pack are playing zone and Gaddy beat it with a three-pointer. UW 22-22.
PRESSED — The Wolf Pack picked the Huskies up full court and it caught UW momentarily by surprised. Washington broke the press and N’Diaye finished with a layup. Nevada 22-19, 5:05.
ROSS ANSWERS — Ross drained consecutive three-pointers. Nevada 19-17, 6:53.
HARSH WORDS? — The Huskies aren’t on the same page. Gaddy looked as if he tried to communicate something to Ross and Ross wasn’t in the mood for a conversation. Gaddy patted him on the backside. The players are looking to the sideline for direction and the look on their faces isn’t good. Romar is barking instructions and staying positive. UW has 11 turnovers. Nevada 19-11, 7:59.
PREACHING PATIENCE — Washington looks out of sync. It lost the ball on a shot-clock violation. Romar is asking the Huskies to settle down. They look rattled. Nevada 17-11, 9:25.
AGAIN — On the next Nevada possession, Czyz drove baseline and jammed over Breunig again. Wow. Nevada 15-11, 11:38.
POSTER —Czyz drove into the lane and Breunig rotated to help out, but couldn’t stop the Wolf Pack forward from flushing a two-hand jam. Nevada 13-9, 12:12.
MORE SUBS — Desmond Simmons is in for Gant and Martin Breunig replaced N’Diaye. Nevada 11-7, 13:36.
SLOPPY — The Huskies have seven turnovers.
BAD START — This is is not how the Huskies wanted to start. They’re all over the place. Wroten has at least two turnovers. No one has gotten a good shot. Gant has all of the points and the offense is out of sync. Nevada 11-4, 15:12.
FIRST SUB — Wroten replaces Ross. Nevada 5-4, 17:12.
MATCHUPS — Gaddy has Burton, Wilcox is on Story, Ross is on Evans, Gant has Czyz and N’Diaye is on Hunt. UW 4-4, 17:44.
NICE CROWD — Actually it’s a pretty nice turnout. The lower bowl is full and there’s a good spill over into the upper bowl. I’d say there’s about 7,000 here and the place is pretty loud.
STARTING LINEUPS — Same starters for UW: G Abdul Gaddy, G C.J. Wilcox, G Terrence Ross, F Darnell Gant and C Aziz N’Diaye.
Nevada: F Dario Hunt, F Olek Czyz, G Jerry Evans Jr., G Malik Story and G Deonte Burton.
SUPERSTITIOUS? — After warm-ups, Tony Wroten Jr. often throws the ball off the glass for Terrence Ross who flushes a dunk. They did it again tonight.
GOING DEAF — The Nevada folks place the visiting team in front of the Wolf Pack band. The student section is seated along the baseline near the visitors.
LOW TURNOUT — Not many folks in the building just yet. But locals say to expect about 5,000 or so.
ON TV — The game is being televised by ESPNU. Roxy Bernstein and Miles Simon have the call. You can find it online at ESPN.3.com. There may also be other pirate signals.
NBA SCOUTS IN THE HOUSE — There’s at least six scouts in the building. I’ve seen representatives from Chicago, Houston and Orlando.
BACK IN BLACK — The Huskies are debuting their black jerseys for the first time this season.
