LAS VEGAS -- Despite LaMarr Greer's 27 points, the BayRunners lost to the Las Vegas Silver Bandits, 111-96, before an announced crowd of 1,508 at the Thomas & Mack Center last night.

The win was the Silver Bandits' third straight and 14th in the past 15 games. The BayRunners (9-17) dropped to 1-8 on the road.

Las Vegas (17-11) was led by Harold Ellis, who scored 27 points off the bench on 9-for-14 shooting from the field. Ellis was 8-for-8 from the free-throw line.

Silver Bandits forward Rocky Walls, the IBL's leading rebounder, recorded his league-best 17th double double, scoring 21 points and pulling down 16 rebounds.

J. R. Henderson also scored 21 points for Las Vegas.

Las Vegas played without starting point guard Issac Burton, who missed the game because of a family emergency.

The Silver Bandits never trailed in the game. It was tied only once at 42 with 2: 22 left in the first half.

"This was the kind of game we have not had all year," Ellis said. "A wire-to-wire win was good for us, especially without Isaac."

Said Greer: "We needed to move the ball a lot more tonight. We weren't getting back on defense and we couldn't hit shots. They played tough tonight and that is why they are hottest team right now."
