Recap: Nevada vs. Pacific

Reno, NV (Sports Network) - Andrew Bock made a layup with five seconds left lift the Pacific Tigers to an 80-78 win over the Nevada Wolf Pack in the season opener for both teams at the Lawlor Events Center.

Tony Gill led Pacific (1-0) with 22 points on 9-of-12 shooting from the field while Ross Rivera tallied 14 points off the bench. Sama Taku netted 13 points and Trevin Harris added 11 points. The win marked the first for Ron Verlin, who is in his first season as the Tigers' head coach after spending 19 years as an assistant under Bob Thomason.

Deonte Burton paced the Wolf Pack (0-1) with 23 points thanks to a 12-of-13 performance at the charity stripe. Jerry Evans, Jr. chipped in 13 points and nine rebounds, Marqueze Coleman scored 12 points and Michael Perez finished with 11 points for Nevada.

The Wolf Pack took a 42-37 lead into the intermission after they shot 48.4 percent from the field and 10-of-13 at the free-throw line in the first half. Pacific stayed close by sinking five of its seven 3-point attempts before the break.

Nevada cooled off in the second half and hit on only 33.3 percent of its shots from the field. The hosts made 14-of-15 at the charity stripe over the final 20 minutes, but it was not enough to hold off the Tigers, who knocked down 58.1 percent of their field goal tries after halftime.

Coleman drilled a 3-point attempt to even the score at 78 with only 34 seconds remaining before Bock's last second heroics put Pacific back on top. On Nevada's final possession, Burton missed a potential game-winner from beyond the arc before Evans, Jr failed to convert a put-back layup just before the buzzer.

Pacific outscored the Wolf Pack, 46-32, in the paint and held a narrow, 32-31, edge in the rebounding battle.
