Jermaine Marshall scored 20 points, while Jordan Bachynski was outstanding as well with 17 points, 15 rebounds and four blocks. Egor Koulechov (10 rebounds) also corralled double-digit boards for the visitors.

Although neither team shot greater than 39 percent from the field in the opening half, UNLV carried a 38-34 lead into intermission after ending the frame on a 7-1 run.

The Rebels held a one-point lead with just over eight minutes to play when Koulechov drilled a jumper to put ASU ahead. The Sun Devils clung to a single- digit advantage down the stretch and sealed their fate by shooting 3-of-4 at the free-throw line in the final minute.

Neither UNLV (15-of-29) nor ASU (11-of-20) shot well from the stripe on the evening.
