Halftime: UNLV 41, BYU 34

Some notes from halftime:

  • UNLV is looking for the second upset of the night at the Mountain West Conference tournament and is hitting big shots against BYU. The Rebels are 8-of-11 from beyond the arc.

  • Tyler Haws is in street clothes and unavailable to play with an eye swollen shut after getting poked in the eye last night. He was replaced in the lineup by Michael Loyd Jr., who has five points.

  • Jimmer Fredette has 12 points and is 4-for-8 from the field. He's coming off a 45-point game against TCU, and during this game, has quietly done some lobbying with the refs about calls that didn't go his way.

  • Chace Stanback leads UNLV with 11 points, with the UCLA transfer hitting 3-of-4 from beyond the arc. He's also the team's leading rebounder thus far with four.
