IRVINE — A late second-half rally wasn’t enough to keep the UC Irvine women from falling, 85-73, to UNLV Sunday afternoon. Trailing by 14, their largest deficit of the game, the Anteaters (4-5) pulled within six with 7:21 left in the game after a three-point goal by senior forward Miranda Forry. However, the Rebels hit eight of 12 free throws, compared to just one from Irvine senior guard Anna Mai for the win at Bren Events Center. “They’re the most athletic team we’ve played this year, and they were definitely challenging, and we didn’t step up in all the areas that we needed to,” said Irvine Coach Molley Tuter.
