PROVO, Utah — For a long stretch of tough road, Tre’Von Willis and UNLV were in complete control. … And then came the crash, a sudden breakdown caused by empty possessions and various errors that turned the Mountain West Conference opener into another disappointment for the Rebels. … Willis scored a game-high 24 points but could not be the closer as Brigham Young staged a late rally to defeat UNLV 77-73 in an intense back-and-forth battle Wednesday night at the Marriott Center.
After trailing Brigham Young by 12 points early in the second half, a hungry Lady Rebels squad pulled within two three times down the stretch.
PROVO, Utah — On this side of the court, it is just the first of 16 conference games, just one defeat to an opponent that loses at home about as often as Tre’Von Willis thinks pass first, dribble second.
