Tempers flare outside locker rooms after Utah State upsets No. 12 Nevada

That ‘unacceptable’ expletive-laden shouting match after Utah State beat Nevada? The conference says it wasn’t the fault of fans

That ‘unacceptable’ expletive-laden shouting match after Utah State beat Nevada? The conference says it wasn’t the fault of fans

Merrill played every minute against No. 12 Nevada, and the junior guard never wasted a second while on the court. As Nevada tried to take advantage of an open lane, senior forward Quinn Taylor flew in to block their shot. Utah State kept up its pace in the fourth, not allowing the Pack to get within 10 points.

With only two games left in the Mountain West season, Nevada has some serious regrouping to do before the full pressure of March hits. The Aggies knocked off the 12th-ranked Wolfpack 81-76 in front of a raucous sell-out crowd.

Musselman and other Nevada staff members also were heard yelling at police officers, alleging that Utah State fans touched their players as they were exiting the court. UNR could not draw any closer after having several players foul out over the final three minutes.

-Nevada was outrebounded by Utah State 38-29.

-The Pack played even with the Aggies in the second half, but was outscored 35-24 in the first half.

Merrill scored 15 of his 17 first-half points in the first 12 minutes. Redmon finished with eight points. Utah State wraps up the regular season Tuesday at Colorado State, while Nevada has games at Air Force and against San Diego State. He then had to be held back from returning back up the hallway.

Federer hits 100 career wins with Dubai crown
Federer lost to the 20-year-old Tsitsipas, a rising star from Greece, in the last 16 of the Australian Open in January. This is where I've won so many of them, been around for so long.

Nevada declined to speak to the press after the game.

This doesn't mean the second half wasn't filled with drama. She has scored in double figures in back-to-back games and in three of her last four games. "Our bench had 29 points with (Diogo) Brito, and Dwayne (Brown, Jr.) and of course (Justin) Bean". "That really gave us a chance and kept us in the game". "They're the No. 1 offensive team in our league and the No. 1 defensive team in our league".

USU's Brock Miller looks to pass as Aggie head coach Craig Smith looks on.

"I'm in good enough shape to be able to do it", Merrill said. "I don't feel like this one win is going to put us in, maybe it will". But I feel like we're one of the 64 best teams in the country.

The Mountain West Conference is investigating the incident.

Utah State finished the night shooting 50 percent (26-of-52) from the field, 41.7 percent (5-of-12) from long range and 66.7 percent (14-of-21) at the free-throw line.
