Greene's Take: UNLV's leader in assists a year ago, Bellfield has had a knack for scoring at just the right time, especially in big games. He's delivered clutch buckets against Louisville in wins each of the last two seasons and also hit a crucial game-tying 3-pointer in the team's loss to Northern Iowa in the first round of last year's NCAA tournament. He finished last season hobbled by a knee bruise that never got a chance to heal fully during the busy season. He was a 37.2 percent 3-point shooter a year ago, and that number is key now that he'll have to help fill the void left by missing long-range guns Matt Shaw and Kendall Wallace.
