LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- UNLV's Oscar Bellfield saw Louisville's Samarado Samuels step out to guard him and figured the only way to get it over the 6-foot-9 center was to flip it up in the air and let the laws of physics go to work."I wanted to go right [and] the big man came at me," Bellfield said. "I had to duck under him and get it high off the board. I haven't hit a last-second shot since middle school."
• The last time UNLV beat Louisville was the 1990-91 season when they went 34-1 and went to the Final Four.
• The Rebels end the Cardinals' 15-game home winning streak in winning their seventh straight.
• UNLV led throughout the game before Louisville rallied to take the lead with 1:44 left.
