SAN JOSE, Calif., Dec. 4 (UPI) -- Marcelus Kemp scored 20 points and Ramon Sessions had 19 in keying the 19th-rated Nevada Wolf Pack's 77-71 victory over the California Golden Bears.
Sessions scored 11 consecutive points for Nevada (7-0) down the stretch as the Wolf Pack held off California (6-2) in the second half of Sunday's game in the Pete Newell Challenge.
The Golden Bears used a 22-5 run, capped with Theo Robertson's 3-pointer, to tie the score at 65-65 late in the second half. But Sessions had back-to-back shots for a 4-point Wolf Pack lead with about 2 minutes left and, with California forced to foul, Nevada iced the game by hitting its free throws as time wound down.
Ayinde Ubaka paced the Golden Bears' attack with 16 points while DeVon Hardin chipped in 14 points and 10 rebounds for California, which saw a five-game winning streak snapped.
