UCLA's losses continue to be UNLV's gains the way Chace Stanback and Mike Moser are playing. The Bruins transfers will try to help the No. 19 Runnin' Rebels improve to 10-0 at home Wednesday night against a Central Arkansas team coached by Corliss Williamson. UNLV (13-2) is seeking to win 14 of its first 16 for the first time since 2006-07. The Rebels have been led all season by Stanback, averaging 14.5 points, and Moser, scoring 13.7 per game. Stanback is in his third season with the program since coming over from UCLA. He was named the Mountain West Conference's player of the week last week after averaging 22.0 points in lopsided wins over Louisiana-Monroe and California. Moser, meanwhile, is in his first season with UNLV and is leading the MWC with 11.2 rebounds per game - just ahead of another former Bruins big man, Drew Gordon of New Mexico. Stanback had 15 points and Moser 14 in Friday's 85-68 rout of the Golden Bears. Stanback drained a 3-pointer for a 20-point cushion at the half and the Rebels led by as many as 27. "I told the team that for about 35 of the 40 minutes we were sensational," coach Dave Rice said. "We had about five minutes where our effort and execution lacked. But overall, I knew that today we would play well. We are always confident going into games. We were locked into what we were trying to do." Anthony Marshall had a season-high 22 points and nine rebounds and point guard Oscar Bellfield had nine of his season-high 11 assists in the decisive first half. "I have great teammates," Marshall said. "Everyone on the team gets along. We are brothers." The Rebels are 9-1 all-time against teams from the Southland Conference heading into their first matchup with Central Arkansas (5-6). While the Bears are an unheralded opponent, their coach is not. Williamson was the 1994 Final Four's Most Outstanding Player as he led Arkansas to the NCAA title and also was a member of the 2003-04 Detroit Pistons NBA championship team. While Williamson was known as a rugged defender, his team is last in the Southland in allowing opponents to shoot 49.0 percent – one of the worst marks in the nation. The Bears trailed by 19 points at halftime of last Wednesday's 87-64 loss at Drake, which shot 52.4 percent. "We had 10 of our 14 turnovers in the first half," Williamson told Central Arkansas' official website. "You think if we don't give those 10 turnovers away, or at least cut it in half, maybe we're down just nine or 10 at the half." Senior guard Dewan Clayborn scored a career-high 23 to give him 41 points in his last two games after he totaled 43 in his first nine. LaQuentin Miles, who leads the Southland with a 17.7 scoring average, has averaged 11.0 during the Bears' three-game slide. "If we can continue to get that type of production from Dewan, that's going to be a positive for us in conference play," Williamson said. "We just need to get some of our other guys back up to par."
