UNLV falls to San Diego State

The Runnin' Rebels fell to the San Diego State Aztecs Thursday in the Mountain West Conference tournament. 

LAS VEGAS (AP/FOX5) -- Jalen McDaniels had 25 points and 14 rebounds as San Diego State topped UNLV 63-55 in the quarterfinals of the Mountain West Conference Tournament on Thursday.

Devin Watson had 19 points for San Diego State (20-12). Nathan Mensah added seven rebounds.

Kris Clyburn had 19 points for the Runnin' Rebels (17-14). Amauri Hardy added 11 points and seven assists. Joel Ntambwe had 10 points and eight rebounds.

SDSU shot a UNLV-opponent season-low of 29.8 percent, but still topped the Runnin' Rebels, who shot a season-low 32.3 percent.

San Diego State advances to the tournament's semi-finals versus University of Nevada-Reno, Friday at 6 p.m. PT. 

The Runnin' Rebels' season is likely over, unless they're invited and accept a bid in a postseason tournament. The team loses seniors Kris Clyburn and Noah Robotham to graduation.
