Caleb Martin scored all 22 of his points in the second half Friday night as seventh-ranked Nevada pulled away from Pacific for an 83-61 non-conference men's basketball win in Reno, Nev.

Martin watched as his brother Cody buried two 3-pointers and Tre'Shawn Thurman hit three as the Wolf Pack (2-0) used 7-for-13 accuracy from beyond the arc to claim a hard-earned 34-25 halftime advantage.

A 3-pointer by Jahbril Price-Noel got the Tigers (1-1) within five early in the second period. But Nevada's Jordan Caroline dropped in three hoops, including a 3-pointer, and Caleb Martin got on the board with a three, assisted by Caroline, to put the hosts in command at 44-29.

The Wolf Pack held the Tigers at arm's length the rest of the way, outscoring the visitors 45-15 on 3-pointers and 18-6 at the foul line by game's end.

Caleb Martin shot 5-for-12 on 3-pointers to account for the majority of his points. The Wolf Pack made 15 of 31 (48.4 percent).

Cody Martin, who went scoreless in Nevada's season-opening win over BYU, finished with an 11-point, 10-assist double-double for Nevada, which beat Pacific for the fourth consecutive season.

Caroline had 16 points, Thurman 14 and Jazz Johnson 12 to make it five members of the Wolf Pack in double figures.

Anthony Townes paced Pacific with 13 points, making all five of his shots.

Jahlil Tripp complemented nine points with a game-high eight rebounds for the Tigers, who had opened with a 74-65 win at Southern Illinois-Edwardsville.
