Pacific hosts UNLV on Saturday night at the Alex G. Spanos Center. The Rebels have won their last two games against Oral Roberts and Illinois. The Tigers have dropped two consecutive against UC-Davis and Wyoming.

Rebels win at the free throw line against Illini

UNLV picked up one of their biggest wins of the season against Illinois, 89-82, last time out. The Rebels had the upper hand through most of the game and pulled off the win. They hit 52 percent of their shots and went to the foul line very often. The Illini committed a whopping 36 fouls and UNLV made 33-of-48 free throw attempts. It could have been a landslide if the Rebels were able to hit some more free throws.

Illinois had trouble keeping senior guard Jovan Mooring (15.2 ppg) off the foul line. He went 14-for-18 from the charity stripe and led the team with 27 points. He also made three 3-point shots. Freshman forward Brandon McCoy (20.2 ppg, 11.1 rpg) had his third double-double in the last five games. He struggled at the free throw line making just 4-of-10, but he went 9-for-11 overall from the field and ended his night with 22 points and 10 rebounds.

Tigers offense looks to open things up in tough meeting against Rebels

Pacific averages 75.6 points per game, which is significantly lower than the 91.5 points per game that UNLV chucks up. The offense will need to step things up based on their recent action, being held to 69.5 points over their last two games. The latest defeat was a 86-72 romping against Wyoming on the road. They were held to just 41.7 percent shooting, missed nine free throws, and only registered seven assists while coughing the ball up 14 times.

Sophomore guard Kendall Small (9.2 ppg) ended his day with 17 points on 8-of-14 shooting. He also chipped in six rebounds and the only blemish on his day was turning it over four times. Junior guard Miles Reynolds (12.4 ppg) led the team off the bench with 21 points. He went 10-for-11 from the free throw line and went 5-for-8 overall from the field. He’s now made 60-of-70 free throws on the season (85.7 percent).

Trends

UNLV is:

  • 8-2-1 ATS in their last 11 games overall
  • 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games against teams with a losing SU record

Pacific is:

  • 1-4-1 ATS in their last 6 non-conference games
  • 7-20 ATS in their last 27 games on Saturday

Look for the Rebels offense to completely run Pacific out of their own building. The home team’s defense won’t have enough answers to slow down players like McCoy and Mooring, and their own offense will probably have issues as well.
