Petty's 22 too much for Runnin' Rebels- Tide win 86-74

Box score

The better team won last night... but made it much tougher than it needed to be.

We started off strong with 3 straight 3s and built an early lead, but UNLV came back with a bunch of 3s to get back into it and we were all tied at 38 at the half. 2nd half saw us open up with 2 quick 3s to open up a lead that we pretty much maintained the rest of the game.
We shot much better in the 2nd half and even got the ball inside the arc a few times... more on that later. Defensively we did enough to keep them at 42% inside the arc for the night. Also, 21 assists and only 11 turnovers... BRAVO!

Last night we got good Petty... hope that happens 67% of the time or better.

Being honest I don't care for the barrage of 3s we seem intent on chucking up. I know it's a math game, but man does it detract from the actual game of basketball. 

Next up- Providence
