 BOISE, Idaho (AP) -- Anthony Drmic scored 21 points, James Webb III posted his 11th double-double of the season before leaving with an injury and Boise State toppled UNLV 81-69 on Tuesday night.

Webb finished with 17 points and 12 rebounds for the Broncos (18-10, 9-6 Mountain West), who managed 20 offensive rebounds and 23 second-chance points. Webb got tangled with a UNLV defender with 4:30 left and was taken to the locker room.

Drmic scored 13 points after halftime, including eight in a row to help the Boise State build a double-digit lead midway through the second half that never got back to single digits.

UNLV (16-13, 7-9) was led by Derrick Jones Jr.'s 25 points. The Runnin' Rebels went cold from 3-point range in the second half, shooting just 18.2 percent. They missed eight 3-pointers in a row after starting 7 for 11.

Mikey Thompson added 20 points for Boise State.
