Olsen's 3-pointer at the halftime buzzer handed the Wolverines a 43-18 advantage.
UVU (16-11) shot 59 percent from the field for the game and was 16-of-26 from behind the 3-point arc. Tyray Petty scored 15 while Jourdain Scoubes and Ryan Toolson both scored 14 for the Wolverines.
The Highlanders, shooting 33 percent, were led by Gary Garris 11 points.
