SJSU LETS NEVADA SQUEAK BY, 60-57
A few turnovers and missed opportunities during crunch time kept the Spartans from winning their first game in MW play this season in a tight, 60-57, loss to Nevada on February 7. SJSU hit 16 of their first 20 free throws in the game, but missed four in the final minute of the game. San José State hung around in the first half despite the Wolf Pack having more offensive rebounds (14) than total rebounds for the Spartans (11). Darryl Gaynor II had a season-high 25 points to lead the Spartans. AJ West scored 17 points and grabbed 15 rebounds in only 23 minutes to Nevada.
GAYNOR DROPS SEASON-HIGH 25 ON NEVADA
Freshman guard Darryl Gaynor II had his best game of the season against Nevada with a season-high 25 points on 7-of-14 shooting. He was a perfect 9-of-9 from the free throw line and achieved another season-best with seven rebounds. Gaynor has led the way scoring in five games this season.

MUHAMMAD CONTINUES TO FIND DOUBLE-FIGURES
