EDINBURG, Texas (AP) - Broderick Robinson just missed a double-double, scoring 18 points and grabbing nine rebounds as UMKC won its fourth straight game, thumping UT Rio Grande Valley, 83-59 in a Western Athletic Conference battle Thursday night.

Brandon McKissic finished with 14 points for UMKC (10-19, 5-7), with Marco Smith adding 12, Xavier Bishop 11 and Jordan Giles 10.

Nick Dixon scored 20 points to lead UTRGV (14-15, 5-7). Terry Winn added 11 points.
