BYU vs. UNLV College Basketball – Second Half

This was about the moment when UNLV took over the game. Jackson Emery did a Pete Rose dive, sliding across the court trying to save the ball. It wouldn’t be long before UNLV tied the game and then went ahead to win, as BYU put up brick after brick.

Once a team unravels like this, it’s pretty easy to find photos to show it.

Covered last night’s BYU vs. UNLV game and I’ll make a couple posts out of it. First, the good news… BYU had a great first half, going into the locker room with a double-digit lead.

Brigham Young’s Chris Miles pulls the ball from UNLV’s Darris Santee. Traveling was called on the play. In background, Brigham Young guard Jimmer Fredette.

Next post, when I get a minute, the mirror-image second half…

BYU vs. New Mexico – Too Tight

Two awesome plays that didn’t pan out from last week’s BYU vs. UNLV game. I was way too tight on these, shooting with a 400 and 1.4x teleconverter for a grand total of 560mm (or 728mm if you count the 1.3 sensor crop). Don’t worry if none of that makes sense. It’s all physics and math so you can just tune it out.

First was this really nice touchdown leap by UNLV quarterback Mike Clausen:

Ouch. That would have been a nice loose horizontal. Next up was this:

BYU wide receiver O’Neill Chambers was running the ball upfield and did this wild running leap over a UNLV defender. To see what could have been, check out Mike Terry’s blog. He nailed it.
