It was an ugly offensive performance from UNLV and Air Force as both teams shot under 38 percent for the game. But in the closing seconds of regulation and then overtime, neither team could miss.
With UNLV down by three and just 2.6 seconds to play, Jovan Mooring banked in a three at the buzzer.
Air Force was double teaming Mooring throughout the play, but it didn’t matter. Mooring still got some space and some good fortune.
Then in overtime the Rebels had a chance for a game-winning shot. Mooring was looking for a screen, but Tyrell Green didn’t come until the shot clock had nearly expired.
Mooring took things into his own hands.
But Mooring left some time on the clock. And Air Force’s Jacob Van wanted to get in on the fun.
That shot forced double overtime, where UNLV pulled away for an 87-85 win. Mooring finished up with 30 points as he hit 7 of 14 threes.
