    UNLV rallies from 24 points down to top George Washington

    NEW ORLEANS (AP) -- UNLV overcame a 24-point halftime deficit thanks to some stellar second-half defense and strong shooting, upsetting George Washington 62-61 at the Four Points by Sheraton Invitational on Friday night.

    Sequoia Holmes had 22 of her game-high 25 points in the second half for UNLV (2-4). She hit the go-ahead jumper with 51 seconds left and outscored George Washington (No. 14 ESPN/USA Today, No. 16 AP) by herself over the final 20 minutes.

    The Colonials (5-2) got 22 points from Sarah-Jo Lawrence, while Jazmine Adair added 17.

    George Washington enjoyed a commanding 41-29 rebounding edge, including 19 offensive boards. But UNLV shot 60 percent in the second half and held the Colonials to just 27 percent.

    It was a complete turnaround from the first half, which saw George Washington hold UNLV to 25 percent shooting in claiming a 40-16 halftime lead.

    UNLV trailed 42-17 with 19:33 left following a jumper by Lawrence, and was still down 48-28 with 14:47 to play before the Lady Rebels went on a 19-4 run over the next six minutes.

    UNLV held George Washington to just one field goal during the final six minutes.
