Nov. 26, 2005
LAS VEGAS (AP) - Marcelus Kemp scored 22 of his 24 points in the second half and Mo Charlo added 18 points in No. 22 Nevada, Reno's 68-61 victory over UNLV on Saturday night.
The Wolf Pack survived a six-point performance from scorer leader Nick Fazekas, who came into the game averaging 24 points.
UNR (3-0) led the entire second half, but UNLV twice cut its deficit to a point, including 57-56 with 5:22 play after a fast-break dunk from Louis Amundson. But UNR called a timeout and went on a 11-5 run to finish the game.
The first half featured seven ties and six lead changes, including Kemp's lone points of the half with 3:32 to play that sparked an 8-0 Wolf Pack run to close the half with a 33-25 lead.
Michael Umeh led UNLV (2-1) with 18 points and Amundson added 13.
The Rebels struggled from the field, shooting 39 percent and connecting on just two of 12 3-pointers.
UNLV honored former coach Jerry Tarkanian before the game, naming the court at the Thomas & Mack Center the "Jerry Tarkanian Court."
