Patrick Ewing Jr. and Damone Brown combined for 52 points and 23 rebounds as the Reno Bighorns snapped the Utah Flash's four-game winning streak with a 104-93 victory on Saturday night.

Ewing and Brown each scored 26 as Reno rebounded from Friday's 36-point defeat to Utah. The Bighorns had to overcome an early 12-point first-half deficit in this one before taking control in the second. They outscored the Flash, 30-19, in the third quarter.

Former Syracuse standout and national champion Gerry McNamara registered 20 points on 8-of-12 shooting from the field, while Russell Robinson contributed 10 points. Reno shot 45 percent from the field and 84 percent from the free throw line (26-of-31).

Utah's struggles came from behind the arc as it connected on just 5-of-17 attempts (29 percent).

Dontell Jefferson paced the Flash, who committed 17 turnovers, with 21 points, while Andre Ingram scored 16 and James Lang had 13.

Reno will look to build off this impressive win when it visits the Tulsa 66ers on Thursday. Utah will also take its act on the road when it clashes with
