RENO, Nev -- Jalen Harris scored 20 points and his driving layup with nine seconds left carried Nevada to a thrilling 68-67 win over Wyoming Tuesday night.
The lead changed four times in the final 51 seconds. Wyoming's Hunter Maldonado missed a floating jumper to the right of the basket with three seconds left before Kwane Marble II's lunging put back attempt fell short as time expired.
