LAS VEGAS -- Anthony Bennett scored 22 points to lead five players in double figures, and No. 18 UNLV won its season opener 92-54 over Northern Arizona on Monday night.

Reserve Bryce Dejean-Jones added 15 points for the Runnin' Rebels (1-0) while Anthony Marshall and Katin Reinhardt had 14 points apiece, and Savon Goodman added 11.

The 92 points were the highest point total for the Runnin' Rebels in a season opener since 2005-06, when they opened with a 108-73 win over Long Beach State. UNLV extended its home winning streak to 19 regular-season games, which dates to the end of 2010-11.

UNLV extended its NCAA Division I record for consecutive games with a 3-pointer. Since the 3-point field goal was adopted by the NCAA in 1986-87, UNLV has converted at least one in all 841 games played.

Dewayne Russell had 16 points for Northern Arizona (0-1).
