LAS VEGAS (AP) -- Anthony Marshall and Bryce Dejean-Jones scored 16 points each, helping UNLV rally from a 10-point second-half deficit and hang on to beat Boise State 68-64 on Tuesday night.

Katin Reinhardt and Anthony Bennett added 11 apiece for the Rebels (23-7, 10-5 Mountain West), who won their fifth straight and can clinch the second seed in next week's conference tournament with a win over Fresno State on Saturday.

Anthony Drmic led Boise State (20-9, 8-7) with 22 points and eight rebounds. Drmic was 8 of 12 from the field and 3 of 5 from 3-point range. Jeff Elorriaga had 19 points and was 5 of 10 from behind the arc.

UNLV started the game 1 of 13 from 3-point land but later heated up. Reinhardt hit a big one that bounced high off the rim and in with 16 seconds left to give UNLV a 66-61 lead and clinch the win.
