Vaughn bounces back
Vaughn has ridden the roller coaster through his first five college games. He started out on top, netting 26 in his debut, then just about fell off the map when the Rebels hit the road, totaling just 14 points in two games in New York for the Coaches vs. Cancer Classic. But he set a new career-high against Albany, exploding for 29 highlight-worthy points in 30 minutes.

The freshman’s entire offensive repertoire was on display. He made 5-of-11 from 3-point range, drove through the defense for several layups, stuck some mid-range jumpers, and even turned defense into offense with a nifty steal-and-breakaway late in the second half.

His best stretch came with about seven minutes to play. With Albany in a zone defense, Vaughn drove to the middle and finished with a layup to make it 62-50 in favor of UNLV. On the next trip down the floor, he drove in from the opposite wing for another layup. Two possessions later, he drove again and this time fed Chris Wood for an alley-oop dunk to make it 68-52. On Albany’s ensuing possession, Vaughn tipped away a pass at midcourt and streaked the other way for a layup, plus the foul. He didn’t hit the free throw, but made up for it on UNLV’s next possession by drilling a 3-pointer.

In a span of 2:42, he scored nine points on four shots and tossed in an assist for good measure. For the game, Vaughn made 11-of-18 shots, showing how good he and the UNLV offense can be when he is operating at close to peak efficiency.
