  17. Wolf Pack notebook: Nevada plays Follow the Leader behind BurtonRead the original story

    Feb 22, 2014 | Reno Gazette-Journal

    Deonte Burton is back, and so, too, might the Wolf Pack be. Burton, Nevada's senior point guard and unquestioned leader, had not shot better than 50 percent from the floor in seven straight games. And he had missed half of his 34 free throws in the last five games. He battled a stomach virus that affected him in the New Mexico loss a week ago, but otherwise it was difficult to pinpoint what was going wrong. There might not be a reason to worry anymore. He hit 6-of-7 shots from the floor, 2-of-3 from 3-point range, and 7-of-8 from the free throw line, scoring 21 points to lead the Wolf Pack past Air Force 75-56. "I think he felt a little better today," coach David Carter said. "He got some rest. ... He converted free throws. That's the biggest confidence booster for him." Said Burton: "I got my legs back under me. I got my confidence back." It might be just a coincidence, but another slump went by the wayside, too. Defense has been sporadic in the Wolf Pack's last six games, but it was back to what helped the team build a 7-2 Mountain West Conference record early. "They run a pretty complicated offense, so we had to lock in and tune in," Burton said of the Falcons. "They still got baskets here and there, but when we rely on our defense and our defense comes through for us, then we're a good team." ANOTHER SOLID PERFORMANCE BY THE BENCH The Wolf Pack got solid efforts from its three key reserves, who totaled 18 points, the highest scoring output since scoring 19 in an 80-73 loss to Missouri on Nov. 29, a stretch of 19 games. Freshman D.J. Fenner scored eight points on 3-of-5 shooting and added two rebounds, two assists and a steal. Ronnie Stevens had five points and two rebounds. And Marqueze Coleman added five points. "It's very important," Burton said, "especially coming down the stretch. ... Legs get tired. Guys are going to have to produce off the bench, especially down the line at the Mountain West Tournament." AROUND THE RIM The Wolf Pack had four double-digit scorers (Burton, 21; Mike Perez, 12; Jerry Evans Jr., 11; Cole Huff, 11) and improved to 8-5 in such games. ... Burton had the game high in scoring for the 13th time this season and led the Wolf Pack in scoring for the 20th time. ... Air Force lost for the eighth time in nine games. After scoring at least 60 points 16 times in their first 17 games, the Falcons have failed to reach the 60-point plateau in eight straight.
