Fresno State pulled off one of the biggest upsets in the Mountain West Conference this season, beating Nevada-Las Vegas 64-55 on Wednesday at the Save Mart Center.
The Bulldogs, who have wilted when challenged down the stretch for the past season-half and lost seven games this season by seven points or fewer, made plays this time, got stops this time. And they were rewarded.
Kevin Olekaibe led the Bulldogs with 21 points and Tyler Johnson added 15, leading four players in double-digits. And they held the Rebels to a season-low 55 points in nabbing a second conference win in eight games.
Coach Rodney Terry, Olekaibe and Johnson discussed the victory in a post-game press conference.
