IRVINE, Calif. (AP) — Jordan Caroline poured in 24 points, grabbed 13 rebounds and handed out four assists to help Nevada remain unbeaten with a 76-65 victory over UC Irvine on Saturday night.

Kendall Stephens hit 5 of 7 from beyond the 3-point arc and scored 17, Caleb Martin added 15 points and twin brother Cody Martin scored 11 for the Wolf Pack (8-0), who have won six straight — four this year — on the road.
