LAS VEGAS (AP) -- Anthony Bennett had 22 points and 11 rebounds to lead UNLV to a 74-52 victory over Chicago State on Thursday night.

Bennett, a freshman who came in averaging 19.2 points per game, was one of four players to score in double figures for the Runnin' Rebels (12-2) and has now led UNLV in scoring in 12 of their 14 games. Khem Birch added 13 points and 12 rebounds, Katin Reinhardt had 12 points and Carlos Lopez-Sosa chipped in 11.

UNLV overcame a relatively sloppy performance and a season-high 21 turnovers. The Runnin' Rebels pulled away late with a 13-0 run, going up 66-42 after the Cougars (4-13) had pulled within 11.

Jamere Dismukes scored 13 points and Matt Ross added 11 for the Cougars, who couldn't compete with the Rebels in the paint. UNLV outrebounded the Cougars 49-27 and outscored them 30-22 in the paint and 23-8 on second-chance points.
