RENO, Nev. — A funny thing happened on the way to the perfection for the Nevada Wolf Pack.
On Jan. 5, the New Mexico Lobos, suffering through a disappointing up-and-down season, shocked the college basketball world, not only pulling off the upset that night against the undefeated, No. 6 Nevada Wolf Pack in Dreamstyle Arena — the Pit, but blowing them out by 27 points.
And all the head scratching over the past month has been unable to explain just how it happened, or why. In fact, in what is still considered by many to be the anomaly game of this college basketball season, the result didn’t really change much of anything.
Nevada (22-1, 9-1 Mountain West) went back to its dominating ways, winning all nine games since that night in Albuquerque, never dropping out of the Associated Press Top 25, and is clearly in the driver’s seat to win the league once again.
