    LAS VEGAS -- Deville Smith scored 21 points and dished out five assists as UNLV beat Santa Clara 92-71 in the Las Vegas Classic Sunday night.

    A pair of free throws by Evan Roquemore pulled Santa Clara within six, 62-56, with 12:31 to play but UNLV (7-4) rattled off 14 of the next 17 points and the Broncos never challenged again.

    Smith, who had scored 36 points all season coming into the game, scored five points and Jelan Kendrick four as UNLV closed the first half on a 9-2 run and took a 47-38 advantage into the break.

    Roscoe Smith scored 15 points for the Runnin' Rebels, who shot nearly 61 percent (34 of 56) from the floor and made 7 of 14 3-point shots.

    Jared Brownridge paced the Broncos (6-6) with 22 points.

    UNLV will take on Mississippi State in the final round on Monday. Santa Clara takes on South Florida.
