RENO, Nev. (AP) — Marqueze Coleman scored 23 points and his 3-pointer with 22 seconds left helped Nevada defeat Wyoming 71-68 Saturday.

Coleman scored 13 of Nevada's final 19 points and had 17 in the second half. His final 3 put the Wolfpack up 68-64, and he shot 3 for 4 from the free-throw line to seal the win.

Coleman has now scored 65.3 percent (185 of 283) of his points in the second half this season.
