Las Vegas, NV (SportsNetwork.com) - Deville Smith scored 21 points, leading five players in double figures, as the UNLV Runnin' Rebels crushed the Santa Clara Broncos, 92-71, in the third round of the Las Vegas Classic at Orleans Arena.

Roscoe Smith accounted for 15 points and seven rebounds for the Runnin' Rebels (7-4), followed by Khem Birch with 14 points and a team-best eight boards as the team posted a fourth straight win. Jelan Kendrick and Bryce Dejean-Jones chipped in 13 points apiece.

The Broncos (6-6) were paced by Jared Brownridge who tallied a game-high 22 points, shooting 6-of-15 from the floor and 7-of-8 at the free-throw line, followed by Brandon Clark and Jerry Brown with 14 and 13 points, respectively, as the squad had a three-game win streak snapped.

UNLV shot an impressive 65.4 percent from the field in the first half, not to mention 5-of-6 beyond the arc, en route to a 47-38 advantage at the break. Deville Smith knocked down all four of his attempts on the perimeter for the local, beating the entire Santa Clara squad which made good on just 3-of-9 on the perimeter.

In the second half the Rebels dipped to just 2-of-8 on the outside and 56.7 percent from the floor overall, but still they were able to gain even more separation over a Broncos group which converted a total of only 10 field goals over the final 20 minutes of action.
