SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) — Marcus Marshall scored 20 points and Nevada cruised past San Jose State 80-69 on Wednesday night, taking a five-game win streak into a season-ending showdown for the Mountain West Conference title in Saturday's finale against Colorado State.

Marshall's scored 20 or better in four straight games but only made 1 of 5 shots from 3-point range Wednesday, pushing his total to 104. He's just the third player in the Mountain West to break 100 treys, joining Jimmer Fredette (124, 2009-10) and Sean Ogirri (109, 2008-09).

This game went Nevada's way early: A 3-point play by Cameron Oliver broke a 4-4 tie, and Marshall also converted a 3-point play to boost the lead to 15-5 eight minutes in. The Wolf Pack (24-6, 13-4) led by double digits thereafter, cruising into a 23-point halftime lead when Leland King II hit a 3-pointer just before the buzzer.

Lindsey Drew added 14 points and Oliver 13.

Ryan Welage led San Jose State (14-14, 7-10) with 16 points.
