HONOLULU (AP) - Norman Nolan scored 15 of his game-high 24 points in the first half and pulled down 10 rebounds Monday to lead Virginia to a 72-54 victory over cold-shooting Brigham Young in a consolation round game of the Rainbow Classic.
Curtis Staples added 17 points and Donald Hand 14 as the Cavaliers (7-4) got off to a fast start in pulling away from the Cougars (3-9). Nolan scored 10 points in the first 10 minutes to set the tone for the game. It was 35-19 at the half with Nolan scoring 15 of his points.
BYU went 5-for-22 over the first 20 minutes and scored more points off free throws (8). In the second half, BYU trailed 47-24, but pulled to within five after a 21-3 run.
However, Nolan and Hand scored 18 points down the stretch to put the game out of reach. For the game, Virginia shot 52 percent and outrebounded BYU, 28-23. Ron Selleaze led Brigham Young with 20 points.
