UNLV Falls At Home To UNR|
Feb. 25, 2017
LAS VEGAS (AP) UNLV (10-18, 3-12), got 15 points from Christian Jones and 12 apiece from Jovan Mooring and Kris Clyburn but it was not enough as the Runnin' Rebels fell to Nevada, Reno Saturday night, 94-58.
Jordan Caroline scored 31 points, Marcus Marshall made eight 3-pointers and finished with 28 points, and UNR won its fourth straight to remain atop the Mountain West.
Marshall's 8-for-10 performance from beyond the arc gave him a school-record 103 3-pointers this season for the Wolf Pack (23-6, 12-4). Marshall is the third player in the Mountain West to top 100 3s and the first since Jimmer Fredette splashed 124 for BYU in 2010.
Tied 12-12 early in the first half, Caroline's layup with 14:30 remaining sparked a 7-0 run and put UNR up for good. The Pack held a 45-30 advantage at the break and led by double figures the rest of the way, using an 18-0 run to take a 90-52 lead with five minutes left.
