Neilson also had 12 rebounds for the Wolverines (5-3). Jake Toolson scored 16 points with four rebounds, Kenneth Ogbe added 13 points and Brandon Randolph had 11 points with nine rebounds, six assists and two steals.
Utah Valley senior forward Isaac Neilson spent two years at BYU (2013-15) before being told he wasn’t part of the long-term plans in Provo. He transferred just a few miles away to become a Wolverine and is now in his final year of eligibility.
Which means Wednesday night’s Crosstown Clash (7 p.m. MST, BYUtv) is his last opportunity to face his former team.
“I have a winning record against them,” Neilson said Monday after practice. “This game definitely means a lot to me.”
