The Nevada Wolf Pack thought they were going to be in for a little pre-Thanksgiving feast with the Longwood Lancers in town Tuesday night at Lawlor Events Center.
It turns out they were almost the main course.
"They never went away," Pack guard Malik Story said. "They just kept running their plays no matter what we did, no matter how loud the crowd got. They just kept going at us."
The Wolf Pack saw a 15-point second-half lead disappear but found a way to hold on for a 80-78 victory over the never-say-die Lancers in front of 2,656 fans.
