The UNLV men’s basketball team ended multiple streaks with a big 68-64 road win at Boise State Tuesday night.

With the victory, the Runnin’ Rebels ended the Broncos‘ 22-game home win streak, which was the longest in the nation, ended their own eight-game skid to Boise State, and won at Extra Mile Arena for the first time in six tries.
Rob Whaley Jr. led UNLV in scoring with a career-high 18 points, while Justin Webster added 15 and Keylan Boone had 10. Luis Rodriguez collected a season-high 12 rebounds. Boise State was led by Tyson Degenhart’s 24 points and O’Mar Stanley’s 12 rebounds.
UNLV led 61-59 with a little more than a minute to play when Webster’s jumper gave the Runnin’ Rebels a four-point lead. After free throws by both teams, Tyson Degenhart cut the lead to two points with a driving layup with 22 seconds to go. Webster was fouled on the inbound pass and made both free throws. Boise State’s Max Rice made two free throws with eight seconds to go, and Webster made another two foul shots with six seconds left for the final margin of victory.

UNLV has made at least one 3-pointer in an NCAA record of 1,209 straight games.

Kalib Boone, once again, got the scoring going for UNLV as he hit a short jump shot to give the Runnin’ Rebels a 2-0 lead to start the game.

The Runnin’ Rebels lead got extended to eight points after Rob Whaley Jr. hit a jump shot to make the score 21–13. With just over seven minutes left in the first half, UNLV extended their lead to 10 points, 26–16, after another jump shot from Keylan Boone. 

But Boise State cut the lead to just one point, 30–29 with 2:30 left in the first half, and eventually took the lead, 31–30 with just 1:15 left to go in the first half. But UNLV kept their composure and went into halftime with a 36–34 lead after a Justin Webster three-pointer with just seven seconds remaining in the first half.

Both teams started the second half slowly. UNLV missed three free throws and had a turnover, allowing Boise State to tie the game up at 36–36. But the RunninRebels took a two-point lead after another Keylan Boone three-pointer. 

The game remained a back-and-forth affair with UNLV and Boise State. Exchanging body blows with neither team separating themselves from the other. But, with 6:52 remaining in the game, Whaley Jr. made a layup to give UNLV a seven-point lead, 59–52.

But Boise State would not back down. With just under three minutes remaining, the Broncos cut the UNLV lead to just two points at 61–59. Dedan Thomas Jr. made a pair of free throws to give UNLV a four-point lead with just 38 seconds remaining in the game.

Justin Webster made a pair of free throws to keep the lead at four, 66–62, but Max Rice made a pair of free throws for the Broncos to bring the lead back down to just two points. With six seconds remaining, Webster made a pair of free throws to seal the game and give UNLV the four-point win, 68–64.
