News

SANTA BARBARA, Calif. (AP) -- Mike Moser scored 34 points and Chace Stanback had all 19 of his after halftime as No. 18 UNLV beat UC Santa Barbara 94-88 in double overtime Wednesday night.

The Runnin' Rebels (8-0) won their first game as a Top 25 team. They were coming off a 90-80 victory over then-No. 1 North Carolina.

Moser came into the game as the nation's leading rebounder, but he did most of the damage against UCSB from behind the arc. He made six 3-pointers, including five in the second half. The sophomore forward, whose previous career-high was 23 points, had 10 rebounds.

Orlando Johnson led the Gauchos (4-2) with 36 points and 10 rebounds. It was second consecutive overtime defeat for UCSB, which lost 76-75 to San Diego State in its previous game.
