Halftime: San Diego State 25, UNLV 22
By Diamond Leung
LAS VEGAS -- Yep, you read that right. Some notes:
One way to tell this is an ugly game is by looking at the total number of made field goals (18) versus turnovers (14) by the two teams combined. Thirteen field goal attempts missed before San Diego State's Kelvin Davis scored on a dunk with nearly five minutes having elapsed. UNLV's first field goal came after that one a banked in jumper from Oscar Bellfield.
Kawhi Leonard continues to show off his tools. He has already collected a whopping 13 rebounds, including five offensive boards. The Aztecs also happen to have 13 more rebounds than the Rebels, who are still missing that interior presence with Derrick Jasper out.
Billy White, the Las Vegas native, has only one point after scoring a career-high 28 last night for San Diego State.
