LARAMIE, Wyo. — New Mexico led nearly the entire second half but wound up in overtime on the road against Wyoming. The Lobos maintained their composure, though, and Cleveland Thomas hit the go-ahead 3-pointer in the extra period and sank four free throws in the closing moments, allowing New Mexico to escape with a 72-69 win on Wednesday.

Alex Kirk blocked a layup by Riley Grabau with 15 seconds left in the extra period with the Lobos hanging on to a 70-69 lead. Thomas grabbed the rebound, was fouled and sank two free throws with 14.2 seconds to go. Grabau missed a 3-pointer from the right wing at the final buzzer, allowing New Mexico to claim its fourth straight victory.
