Amauri Hardy hit four 3-pointers and scored 18 for the Rebels (12-13, 7-5 Mountain West Conference), while Bryce Hamilton added 17 points and seven rebounds.

Bulldogs Led by 3 Late

Fresno State led 23-22 at halftime and used a Noah Blackwell 3-pointer to grab a 67-64 lead with 54 seconds left to play.
But Hardy scored on a layup with 39 seconds to go to pull UNLV within a point. New Williams then missed a 3-pointer for the Bulldogs with 17 seconds left. And, Cheikh Mbacke Diong grabbed the rebound and got the ball to Tillman who fed Coleman for the game-winner and his only basket of the game.

Bulldogs’ Strategy at the End

“New has made big shots. Noah moved it. It got back to Nate, Nate moved it to New. New had a good look. He could have maybe turned the corner and got in the paint, but he had a good look,” said Fresno State coach Justin Hutson. “If that goes in, we win. Sometimes, it’s as simple as that.”
Freshman Orlando Robinson topped Fresno State (8-16, 4-9) with 24 points, while Blackwell and reserve Niven Hart scored 15 apiece.

UNLV shot 40% from the field, including 33% from 3-point range (8 of 24), and made 14 of 17 free throws. Fresno State shot 45% overall, 30% on 3-pointers (7 of 23) and made 14 of 19 foul shots.
