No. 11 UNLV 82, Colorado St. 63

Associated Press  |  Last updated February 02, 2012
Oscar Bellfield and Chace Stanback both scored 16 points and No. 11 UNLV pushed past Colorado State 82-63 on Wednesday night. Bellfield was 4 of 8 from beyond the 3-point line in matching a season-high for points he set earlier this season against then-No. 1 North Carolina. Anthony Marshall and Mike Moser scored 13 points each for the Runnin' Rebels (21-3, 5-1 Mountain West Conference). Moser fell two rebounds shy of a double-double, ending a four-game personal streak for the reigning conference player of the week. The Rams (14-7, 3-3) came within two points of UNLV after starting the second half on an 11-0 run. But the Rebels responded with a 15-4 spurt started by Stanback and Marshall to put the game out of reach. Wes Eikmeier led Colorado State with 18 points, while Dorian Green scored 15. UNLV fell behind 19-12 nearly 7 minutes into the game, then went on a 20-2 run over the next 8 minutes to take a 32-21 lead. With the game tied at 19, Justin Hawkins pulled up for a long 3-pointer to give the Rebels the lead for good, one possession after missing two free throws. UNLV shot 50 percent for the game with 27 fast-break points and 17 points off turnovers. Green scored 10 points in the first half, seven during Colorado State's early run. The Rams were looking to make the conference race even more chaotic after beating then-No. 13 San Diego State by 17 points on Saturday night. Against UNLV, the Rams ended up with 12 turnovers compared with eight assists, and were outrebounded 39-28. Colorado State shot 41.1 percent, 46.2 percent from beyond the 3-point line. The Rebels' reserves scored 20 points, led by Quintrell Thomas with nine in 17 minutes. The teams observed a moment of silence before the game to honor former UNLV coach Charlie Spoonhour, who died Wednesday at 72.
