Halftime: UNLV 29, Utah 25
By Diamond Leung
LAS VEGAS - Some halftime thoughts as UNLV plays on its home court at the Thomas & Mack Center...
UNLV has let Utah crawl back into this one after being up by double-digits. Despite shooting 30 percent from the field, the Utes have made more than half their 3-pointers and all but one of their free throws.
Utah is happy to have defensive player of the year David Foster back in the lineup and Kim Tillie also playing after both missed games due to sprained ankles. Foster, the 7-foot-3 center, already has two blocks to go along with six points and three rebounds.
UNLV had nine players in the scoring column, with Darris Santee leading them with six points. Anthony Marshall has five points and three assists. Leading scorer Tre'Von Willis was held to five points and had three turnovers.
