Those weren't the Runnin' Rebels of old, but they did succeed in running up the score on UC Irvine in No. 22 Nevada Las Vegas' 115-97 victory Saturday night. The crowd of 14,727 in the 20,000-plus capacity Thomas & Mack Center for Rollie Massimino's first home game as UNLV coach was sparse and subdued compared to the years when Jerry Tarkanian was coach. But what they saw was more vintage UNLV than Villanova. "That's like two games worth of points at Villanova," Irvine Coach Rod Baker said.

UC Irvine forward LaDay Smith, a transfer from California, has been declared eligible to make his debut on Saturday, when the Anteaters will face either Mississippi Valley State or second-ranked Kansas in the Golden Harvest Classic in Kansas City. With center Dee Boyer out for three to six weeks because of a leg injury, Irvine is desperate for front-line depth. Smith, a 6-foot-7, 215-pound sophomore, averaged 21.6 points as a senior at Pasadena Muir High School in 1990.
