LAS VEGAS -- Kevin Foster scored 25 points, including six 3-pointers, to shock UNLV 61-52 and hand the Rebels their first loss in 14 games at the Thomas & Mack Center on Saturday.
Foster also had 10 rebounds and Kevin Olekaibe added 13 points as the Bulldogs (11-18, 5-11 Mountain West) earned the seventh seed in next week's Mountain West Conference tournament here. It was also Fresno State's first win on the road against the Rebels in 16 tries.
The Rebels will be either the second or third seed in the Mountain West tournament, depending on the outcome of the Nevada-Colorado State game later.
Former Kentucky guard Ed Davender, the only Wildcat with at least 1,500 points and 400 assists, has died. He was 49.
Guard Naz Mitrou-Long, whose 2015-16 season ended in December due to hip problems, has been granted a hardship waiver for the coming season, Iowa State said.
As the Sooners look to life without superstar Buddy Hield and his sidekicks, it's clear their unseasoned players will need to grow up fast.
