Nevada aims for fourth straight victory

Nov 21, 2006 - 2:36 PM UC Irvine (2-3) at No. 20 Nevada (3-0) 10:05 pm EST

RENO, Nevada (Ticker) - No. 20 Nevada looks to continue its strong start when its hosts California-Irvine on Tuesday.

Nick Fazekas, who decided to return to school instead of go to the NBA, is one of the reasons for the Wolf Pack's success. He is averaging 22.7 points and is shooting 68 percent from the field.

The senior forward scored 20 points and added 17 rebounds on Saturday in a 83-62 victory over Arkansas-Pine Bluff and passed Edgar Jones as the Nevada's all-time leading scorer with 1,880 points.

UC-Irvine is coming off a 85-42 blowout loss at Oregon on Saturday in which it was outscored by 44-13 in the second half.

Patrick Sanders and Darren Fells led the Anteaters with 10 points apiece. UC-Irvine shot only 38 percent from the floor and turned the ball over 26 times.
