SAN DIEGO — Stories about toughness don’t usually include asking to be taken out of the game multiple times. Of course, stories about the Rebels in Viejas Arena don’t usually include a UNLV victory. This one’s got both. UNLV point guard Anthony Marshall looked to the bench multiple times in the final eight minutes, desperate for a breather. He got two of them that totaled 40 seconds. When he was on the court Marshall scored five of his team-high 20 points in that final stretch and grabbed four rebounds, including the final one that sealed an 82-75 victory. It was the first time the seniors, including Marshall, had won here.
