LAS VEGAS (AP) -- Chace Stanback had a career-high 28 and added 10 rebounds to help UNLV beat top-ranked North Carolina 90-80 on Saturday night in the championship game of the Las Vegas Invitational. Mike Moser added 16 points and 18 rebounds, Oscar Bellfield had 16 points and nine rebounds, and Anthony Marshall finished with 13 points for the Rebels (7-0). P.J. Hairston and John Henson each had 15 points for North Carolina (5-1). After North Carolina took a 42-38 halftime lead, UNLV opened the second half with a 14-0 run as the Tar Heels missed their first 10 shots. The Rebels built a 77-63 lead on Lopez's basket off a rebound with 5:39 left. Rebels fans stormed the Orleans Arena court after the victory. The Tar Heels shot 31 percent in the second half. The Rebels gambled early, shooting their first 10 of 15 shots from 3-point and converting four. But the strategy paid off as the Rebels jumped to a 17-9 advantage. The Tar Heels then held UNLV scoreless for the next 4 minutes and took their first lead, at 18-17, on Barnes' baseline jumper with 10:30 left in the half. North Carolina then pushed the advantage to 32-27. Bellfield had 13 first-half points, hitting 3 of 6 3-pointers. Even though the game was played at the Orleans Arena, five miles from the UNLV campus, there seemed to be just slightly more UNLV fans as Tar Heels supporters in the 8,000-seat arena.
