Fresno State sophomore guard/forward Paul Watson (undeclared major) scored 18 points, tied a career-high with nine rebounds and set a new career-high with five blocks to lead the Bulldogs to a 66-62 win over Nevada - completing a season sweep of the Wolf Pack for the first time since 2001.
Watson also made a season-high seven free throws and added two steals and an assist in the victory over Nevada as Fresno State won for the fifth time in its last six games. Watson has averaged 18.7 points per game in the Bulldogs' last three contests.
