LARAMIE, Wyo. -- Khem Birch scored 12 points and grabbed a career-high 14 rebounds to lead a balanced attack for UNLV which rolled to a 65-42 win over Wyoming on Saturday night.

Derek Cooke Jr. scored a career-high 15 points and had nine rebounds to lead Wyoming (18-9, 4-9).

The lead didn't shrink below 17 after that.
