LAS VEGAS (AP) — Oscar Bellfield scored 14 points to lead UNLV over USC 66-55 in the Las Vegas Invitational Friday night.

Mike Moser had 10 points and 13 rebounds and Justin Hawkins added 10 points for the Rebels (6-0), who will play either No. 1 North Carolina or South Carolina in Saturday night’s championship game.

Byron Wesley and Aaron Fuller each finished with 16 points to lead USC (2-4). Wesley had five rebounds and Fuller fouled out with 6:06 left. Maurice Jones had 11 for the Trojans.

The Rebels were technically the visiting team at the Orleans Arena, which is about five miles away from their home arena, the Thomas & Mack Center.

The Rebels won despite USC shooting 52 percent from the field. UNLV shot 41 percent.
