Goodman and Jones spark Rebel victory over Ottawa

In the first two games of the Canadian tour, two freshman have stepped it up for the Rebels. Last night, Katin Reinhardt scored a team high 19 points in victory. On Saturday afternoon, it was Savon Goodman's 17 points and 6 rebounds that paced the Rebels in the win.

UNLV was sloppy on the offensive end in the first half and once again had trouble defending the perimeter. The Gee-Gee's hit on 7-17 three pointers in the first half to head into the locker room with a 45-42 victory. Ottawa was led by Johnny Berhanemeskel's 22 points at the break. He was held scoreless in the second half.

After a lackluster first game, Bryce Dejean-Jones scored a team high 18 points while connecting on 7-11 from the floor and 2-3 from three point range. He also grabbed eight rebounds, handed out three assists, and collected three steals in a well-rounded game.

Justin Hawkins was solid for the Rebels as well. The senior hit 2-of-3 three pointers and finished the night with 12 points and five rebounds.

After trailing by three at the half, UNLV used a 13-1 run to gain control of the game. The lead ballooned to 85-65 with less than three minutes left to play.

The Rebels didn't rely on the three pointer as they had the night before. UNLV only launched 14 three pointers. UNLV did alot of damage on the inside, thwarting the smaller Gee-Gee's with 18 offensive boards. UNLV out-rebounded Ottawa 45-29.

Reinhardt left the game as a precaution midway through the second half after an awkward landing on a successful block attempt. He sat the rest of the game with his knee iced on the bench, but it is not believed to be serious.

The Runnin' Rebels arrived in Canada Thursday night.Anthony Bennett (Fr., F), Khem Birch (So., F) and Roscoe Smith (Jr., F) are not participating in Canada. The Rebels finish the tour with games on Monday and Tuesday night.
