RENO, Nev. -
Junior psychology major AJ John posted his first double-double as an Aggie, consisting of 11 points and 10 rebounds, junior communication major Siler Schneider led four Aggies who scored double figures by finishing with 17, and UC Davis outrebounded the Wolf Pack 36-30, but Nevada remains undefeated at home this season thanks to its 88-73 victory in Tuesday's Continental Tire Las Vegas Classic game.

UC Davis will continue its tournament schedule on Friday when all eight participating teams head to the Orleans Arena, in Las Vegas, for their final two Classic contests. The Aggies will enter Friday’s 2:30 p.m. neutral-site game vs. Lamar with a 7-4 overall record.

Since no video stream is available for the Aggies’ next game, basketball fans can listen to Scott Marsh’s broadcast live online, thanks to TuneIn radio, by searching the phrase UC Davis Sports Network. KSAC 105.5 FM will provide a tape delayed broadcast of Friday’s UC Davis-Lamar matchup, starting at 6 p.m.

Nevada will continue its season with a 10-2 record.

Junior communication major TJ Shorts II and senior communication major Chima Moneke were the Aggies’ other double-digit scorers and ended their evenings with 13 and 10 points respectively.

Tuesday’s non-conference contest was an exciting one that featured five tied scores and six lead changes throughout the opening half. But Nevada was able to pull awayfor good from the Aggies after piecing together 7-0 and 9-0 scoring runs within minutes of one another, and led the entire second half to notch its sixth-straight victory of the year inside the Lawlor Events Center.

Throughout his 20 minutes on the floor, no Wolf Pack player could prevent John from owning the glass. Posting an individual rebound total (10) that equaled one-third of the entire Nevada roster (30), he was singlehandedly responsible for six of the Aggies’ 15 offensive boards — a total that fell two shy of matching Nevada’s total (8).

Shorts II was another Aggie that dominated the glass as he finished with a career-high seven rebounds — all earned on the defensive end of the court.

John wasn’t the only UC Davis reserve who turned in a solid effort against the Wolf Pack as senior American Studies major Arell Hennings chipped in six points, and collected two rebounds throughout his 13 minutes of action. Combined, John and Hennings were responsible for 17 of the Aggies’ 27 bench points.

Led by Caleb Martin and his 22 points, four Wolf Pack players also posted double digit totals. Jordan Caroline added 20, Kendall Stephens added another 16 and Hallice Cooke ended his evening with 12.
