Sunday, 3/18 @ 4:45
Betting Line From Bookmaker: Memphis -5.5

The Nevada Wolf Pack needed overtime to beat the Creighton Bluejays 77- 71. The teams were tied at 59 apiece at the end of regulation. It was the first OT of the 2007 NCAA tournament. The Memphis Tigers, who have won 23 consecutive games and not lost a game since December 20, were in control for much of their first round contest. The Tigers won the game by 15 with a score of 73- 58.

Nevada was stellar from the free throw line, making 14 of 17 (82%). The Wolf Pack was outstanding with 9 blocked shots, four of which came at the hands of Nick Fazekas. Nevada, though, has a tough time handling the ball, turning it over 19 times. They shot 45% from the field and 35% from downtown.

Senior forward Fazekas put up a double-double with 11 rebounds and 17 points. Junior guard Marcelus Kemp led everyone with 12 rebounds, 4 assists and 27 points. Senior guard Kyle Shiloh offered the most balanced attack with 10 points, 3 assists and 7 rebounds.

The Memphis club hit 40% from the field, only 25% from three-point land and 70% from the foul line. The team made 6 steals and blocked 8 shots, while turning over the ball 16 times. Four of five starters scored, while three reserves also contributed. Sophomore guard Chris Douglas-Roberts was the high man with 16 points. Junior forward Joey Dorsey came within one-point of a double-double with 17 rebounds and 9 scores. Robert Dozier, a sophomore guard, was solid with 11 points and 7 rebounds. Guard Andre Allen, a junior, hit for 14 points and dished off 4 assists.

Memphis offers a well-balanced attack with a sound bench. Nevada has got enough power in the starting lineup to give any team fits. However, the Wolf Pack lacks the depth in the bench to go deep into the tournament. Memphis should win the game with its highly talented starting five, but they need to stay away from the threes.
