Basic largest/smallest problem

The goal is to get six numbers from the user and determine which is the largest and smallest, and display said numbers.

Here's what I have so far

Note: Can only use if, not if else or any other switch

I mean, I could do two if statements for every number but that seems highly excessive...

1 import java.util.Scanner;

2 public class gcook_SmallestLargest

3 {

4 public static void main(String args[])

5 {

6 Scanner input = new Scanner(System.in);

7 int smallest = 0,

8 largest = 0,

9 uinput = 0;

10 System.out.print("Please enter the first number: ");

11 uinput = input.nextInt();

12 smallest = uinput;

13 largest = uinput;

14 if(uinput < smallest && uinput != -99)

15 {

16 smallest = uinput;

17 }

18 if(uinput > largest)

19 {

20 largest = uinput;

21 }

22 System.out.print("The smallest is: " + smallest);

23 System.out.print("The largest is: " + largest);

24 }

25 }
