Bighorns’ comeback falls apart in a Flash

OREM, Utah – Reno rallied to tie the score with six minutes left in the game, but Utah outscored the Bighorns 13-3 the rest of the way in an 85-75 Flash victory over Reno on Friday night in the McKay Events Center.

The Flash (10-7) led by nine points early on in the fourth quarter, but the Bighorns (5-11) would chip away at the lead, ultimately leaning on a three-point play by Russell Robinson that tied the score at 72 apiece with six minutes remaining.

From there, though, Utah took control. The Flash went on a 13-0 run over the next five-plus minutes to seal the game and send Reno to its sixth-straight defeat.

Robinson led the Bighorns with 17 points, while Doug Thomas chipped-in 13 points and eight rebounds. Reno shot just 38.4 percent from the floor and committed 22 turnovers.

Bennet Davis paced the Flash with 17 points. Luke Nevill kicked in 16, and Carlos Wheeler pulled-down a game-high nine rebounds.

The Bighorns get right back at it on Saturday night when they head south to take on the Albuquerque Thunderbirds.
