    LAS VEGAS -- Kendall Williams poured in 29 points as New Mexico gained a measure of revenge in Las Vegas by knocking off UNLV, 68-56 Wednesday night.

    New Mexico (20-5, 11-2) is in second place in the Mountain West Conference, a game behind San Diego State, which plays at New Mexico Saturday. The win avenged a 76-73 loss on Jan. 15 at The Pit.

    Williams drilled a pair of 3-pointers to get the Lobos off to a fast start and finished the game shooting 11 of 17 from the floor and 4 of 7 from long range. Cameron Bairstow added 18 points and blocked five shots.

    UNLV (17-9, 8-5) struggled from the field, connecting on just 19 of 60 field goal attempts (31.7 percent). Khem Birch scored 11 points and grabbed 12 rebounds to lead the Rebels, with Roscoe Smith and Bryce Dejean-Jones each adding 10 points.
