RENO, Nev. (AP) - Tony Snell scored 25 points and Cameron Bairstow and Alex Kirk added double-doubles Wednesday night to lead No. 12 New Mexico to its sixth straight victory, 75-62 over Nevada.

Bairstow had 15 points and 10 rebounds and Kirk had 11 points and 10 rebounds for the Lobos (26-4, 13-2 Mountain West), who trailed 55-53 but ran off 17 straight points late in the second half to improve to 8-3 on the road.

Malik Story scored 25 points for the Wolf Pack (12-17, 3-12), who have lost six straight and nine of 10.

Snell, who was 8 of 11 from the field, scored New Mexico's last 10 points of the first half and had eight during the late run for the Lobos, who earlier clinched their fourth league title in five years.
