OTTAWA — Anthony Marshall stole a pass and finished it with a two-handed dunk with 6.9 seconds left to seal UNLV’s 74-70 exhibition victory against Carleton.
UNLV freshman Katin Reinhardt led all Rebels with 19 points, junior Mike Moser scored 10 and Marshall finished with 14 points, seven rebounds and four assists. Carleton’s Philip Scrubb led all scorers with 22 points.
Marshall was looking for the steal with his team ahead by two and less than 20 seconds on the clock. When he saw an opportunity he sprinted into the passing lane and finished the steal with a jam that put UNLV ahead 72-68. After a Carleton basket, Marshall then hit two free throws to put the game on ice.
After a disjointed first half, the Rebels’ offense got into a rhythm in the second half thanks largely to Reinhardt, who scored nine straight points in an 11-0 run. UNLV’s defense late in the game also limited the Ravens on the offensive glass, which was a big problem in the first half. Carleton corralled nine offensive rebounds in the first half and just three after that. The Ravens also hit 10 3-pointers, including seven in the first half.
All 10 Rebels played at least 11 minutes. Reinhardt and Bryce Dejean-Jones, who finished with nine points, led the newcomers with 28 minutes and 27 minutes played, respectively.
The Rebels return to action Sunday at 11 a.m. Las Vegas time, when they will play Ottawa University.
