About Nevada: The Pack won its opener on Friday against Santa Clara, and Gervasoni is now 3-2 all-time in season-opening games ...Mikail Price, who played sparingly last season, knocked in 22 points against the Broncos, and Shavon Moore added 10 points with Marianne Lombardi contributing eight ... The Pack will need to take care of the ball better today, as 27 errors won't win many games. The only thing that saved Nevada was that Santa Clara had 34 miscues... Nevada played solid defense, holding the Broncos to just 17 first-half points.

About SDSU: The Aztecs won their only exhibition, downing Love and Basketball 85-67 ... The Aztecs shot a respectable 44 percent for the game, including 32 percent from 3-point range ... All five of the above-named starters reached double figures. Davis led the way with 18 points and nine rebounds ... The Aztecs had 24 assists in 36 baskets, a repectable ratio.
