Utah defeats Wisconsin-Green Bay 79-60
SALT LAKE CITY (AP)—Luke Nevill scored 10 of his 20 points in the first 4 1/2 minutes of the second half to lead Utah to a 79-60 victory over Wisconsin-Green Bay in the first round of the Glenn Wilkes Classic on Tuesday night.
It was the first win of the season for the Utes (1-1), following their embarrassing opening loss to Division II Southwest Baptist.
The 7-foot-2 Nevill sat out much of the first half with foul trouble but had no problem dominating the smaller Phoenix (0-1) after halftime. He also grabbed 13 rebounds and blocked three shots as the Utes outscored the Phoenix 19-6 over a nine-minute span to take control.
Terry Evans led the Phoenix with 15 points, while Chop Tang added 12.
Luka Drca recorded 16 points and Carlon Brown 13 for the Utes, while Kim Tillie had eight points and 10 rebounds before fouling out.
