STOCKTON — Gerald Paddio scored 18 points, and Anthony Cook added 15 Thursday night as eighth-ranked Nevada Las Vegas overcame the loss of forward Jarvis Basnight and beat Pacific, 77-61, in a Pacific Coast Athletic Assn. game, the Tigers' 18th consecutive loss.

Nevada Las Vegas, 24-3 overall and 13-2 in the PCAA, led 34-30 at halftime and pulled away quickly in the second half.

Christian Gray scored 16 points to lead Pacific (5-20 and 0-14).
