Despite a game-high 26 points from senior Marqueze Coleman, New Mexico ended a four-game losing streak with an 88-76 win over the Nevada men’s basketball team on Wednesday night.

Junior D.J. Fenner added 16 for the Wolf Pack (8-5, 0-1) while freshman Cameron Oliver finished with a game-high nine rebounds and eight points.

Tim Williams finished with 20 for New Mexico (8-6, 1-0 Mountain West) and Obij Aget matched a career-high with 14 points and had 11 boards.

Nevada started 4-of-5 from the field and jumped out to an early 9-4 lead before the Lobos used a 19-1 run to go up 13, 23-10, with 9:01 to play in the first half.

Trailing by 18 with 2:08 left before halftime, a 3-pointer from sophomore Eric Cooper Jr. sparked a 9-0 run that was capped off by a tip-in from junior Kaileb Rodriguez. The run cut the Nevada deficit to nine, 42-33, heading into the locker room.

Nevada kept the game close in the early goings of the second half but a steal and a layup by freshman Lyndsey Drew got the Wolf Pack to within six, 48-42, with 15:05 to play in the game. Sophomore Elijah Foster would make it a six point contest again on a layup at 14:18 but it would be as close as the Pack would get to the Lobos.

The Wolf Pack returns to Lawlor Events Center for its conference home opener against Wyoming on Saturday, Jan. 2.
