Williams, Carter lead Fresno State past UNLV 69-63
Bryson Williams tossed in 20 points on 10-of-14 shooting and Terrell Carter II added 18 points, six rebounds and a pair of blocked shots in the final seconds to help Fresno State hold off UNLV 69-63 on Tuesday night.
When he did bring out the piece of paper, that was very, very unusual. The last time I saw it done was about four or five years ago, also in an NFL game, and that’s not the norm. Gene made the decision strictly on visual affirmation that the ball made the line to gain, Riveron said at the time. I will advise them not to use it again. I’ve already done that.
Broderick Robinson topped UMKC with 14 points and seven boards, while Brandon McKissic scored 11. Aleer Leek, Xavier Bishop and Jordan Giles added 10 points each for the Kangaroos, who have dropped five of six.
William Jewell trailed 12-10 midway through the first half before Hayes hit back-to-back 3s, Whelan followed with two of his own, Hayes hit two more 3s and Harp added a trey and a jumper in a 23-0 run that left the Cardinals with a 33-12 lead. UMKC pulled within six by halftime and got within two on a couple of occasions early in the second half.
Jae’Sean Tate put the Buckeyes (18-4, 9-0 Big Ten) up by six with a layup with 1:02 left, and a pair of foul shots by Kaleb Wesson stretched it to eight. Palmer hit a 3-pointer with 12 seconds left, but Nebraska ran out of time.
I think mentally we just stayed together, said Tate, who had 17 points. There were times you could see we struggled. In the first half, we were getting a little frustrated, but I think we did a great job in the second half, especially later on, coming together and staying together.
