LAS VEGAS (AP) - Anthony Bennett scored 22 points to lead five players in double figures and No. 18 UNLV won its season opener, 92-54 over Northern Arizona on Monday night.
The 92 points were the highest point total for the Runnin' Rebels in a season-opener since 2005-06 when it opened with a 108-73 win over Long Beach State. UNLV extended its home winning streak to 19 regular-season games, which dates to the end of 2010-11.
