Alana Cesarz, Danielle Miller and Mia Bell combined for 39 points to lead the UNLV women’s basketball team to a 57-49 Mountain West victory over UNR on Tuesday night in Reno, the Lady Rebels’ seventh straight victory over their intrastate rival.

Cesarz scored a game-high 14 points, Miller 13 and Bell 12 for UNLV, which gave coach Kathy Olivier her seventh victory in seven games against the Wolf Pack. Aley Rohde had 14 rebounds and eight points, and reserve Rejane Verin scored 10.
