TUCSON, Ariz. — Nic Wise and Derrick Williams each scored nine points to lift Arizona to a 34-29 halftime lead over 24 th-ranked UNLV at the McKale Center.
The Rebels, on the road for the first time this season, were not sharp in any aspect for the first 20 minutes. UNLV shot 2-for-12 on 3-pointers and looked sluggish on the defensive end.
Chace Stanback scored nine points and Derrick Jasper seven to lead UNLV (5-0). Stanback’s three-point play put the Rebels ahead 24-19 with eight minutes left, but the Wildcats (3-2) scored the next six points and took control at the half.
