BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (AP)

First-year Cal State Bakersfield coach Rod Barnes was upset with his team after it became the latest victim in No. 17 UNLV's seven-game winning streak.

Mike Moser and Justin Hawkins both scored 17 points as the Rebels beat the Roadrunners 89-57 on Thursday night.

Moser had 11 rebounds for the Rebels (16-2), who outscored the Roadrunners (7-9) 51-30 in the second half. It started with a 16-2 run over the first 4 minutes of the second half.

''The first half, I thought we competed,'' Barnes said. ''Second half: it's unacceptable. We will not accept this kind of play as a coaching staff. We've got to get some guys' attention. We've got to go about our business so this does not become a trend on how we play against good teams.''

UNLV coach Dave Rice said there was a reason his team took control after halftime.

''We felt like our depth and our conditioning took a toll on them in the second half,'' Rice said. ''That's one thing about our team. We play nine or 10 guys. Depth and conditioning is one of our strong suits. We've always been a second-half team.''

Oscar Bellfield had seven points and two assists in the 16-2 run that gave the Rebels a 54-29 lead with 16:08 to play. The lead never dropped below 30 points over the final 10 minutes.

''It's not the 16-2 run at the beginning (of the second half),'' Barnes said. ''We never made a run to get back in the game. And we're that kind of team. ... We're the type of team to hang in there, make a run, make a game of it.''

Zachary Lamb scored 16 points on 7-of-11 shooting for Bakersfield.

''We literally laid down,'' Lamb said. ''We got lackadaisical. It's not like us.''

Stephon Carter was 6 of 9 from the field and had 13 points for the Roadrunners, his fourth straight game in double figures.

UNLV outrebounded the Roadrunners 43-28 and forced 14 turnovers.

Chace Stanback, the Rebels' leading scorer with a 15.3 average, finished with seven points on 2-for-12 shooting including going 2 of 10 from 3-point range.

Moser made two free throws, Quintrell Thomas added one and Anthony Marshall made a layup in UNLV's 5-0 run to close the half that made it 38-27.

The Rebels' biggest lead was 34 points which they reached five times, the last at 88-54 on a dunk by Karam Mashour with 1:29 to play.

UNLV associate head coach Justin Hutson is a native of Bakersfield and a former assistant coach and player with the Roadrunners.

''We didn't play as well as we'd like in the first half and Cal State played really well,'' Hutson said. ''We just wanted to keep doing what we're doing. We wanted to get stops and get out and run. That's Rebel basketball.''

Thomas had four of UNLV's five blocked shots.

The Rebels shot 48.5 percent from the field for the game (32 of 66) and were 9 of 32 from 3-point range (28.1 percent).

The Roadrunners shot 35.3 percent for the game (20 of 57) and were 4 of 12 from 3-point range.

''We didn't play with the fight and the fire and it's unacceptable,'' Barnes said. ''I thank the fans that came out tonight but I also want to tell them to be patient, we'll get it fixed, it's not the type of effort exemplified in this program or teams that I coach.''

The game drew a crowd of 3,325 at Rabobank Arena.
