SAN DIEGO, Jan. 17 (UPI) -- Khem Birch hit two key shots during a late run Wednesday that lifted Nevada-Las Vegas over No. 14 San Diego State 82-75.

The Rebels outscored the Aztecs the rest of the way 9-2. Birch tallied on a tip-in with 2:22 to play that gave UNLV a 76-73 lead and his layup with 25 seconds to go boosted the Rebels in front 80-75.

Anthony Marshall led the Rebels (15-3, 2-1 MWC) with 20 points, Bryce Dejean-Jones had 14 and Birch added 12.

San Diego State (14-3, 2-1) was paced by Franklin's 27 points.
