RENO, Nev. (AP)—Kevin Foster’s 3-pointer with 6 seconds left forced overtime, and the Bulldogs dominated the extra session for a 69-64 win over conference rival Nevada on Tuesday night.
After the Bulldogs (9-16, 3-9 Mountain West) rallied from a 10-point second-half deficit, Nevada went ahead 58-55 on two free throws by Jordan Burris and one by Malik Story. Foster then drained his long-range shot before Nevada’s Deonte Burton missed one at the buzzer.
Fresno State never trailed in overtime and took its first lead of the game on Tyler Johnson’s dunk with 3:22 left. The Bulldogs added six free throws in the final 30 seconds to seal the victory and snap a three-game losing streak— and a five-game skid against Nevada.
Johnson had 19 points and Foster added 15 for the Bulldogs. Burton scored 12 points to lead the Wolf Pack (12-13, 3-8), who shot just 36.5 percent from the floor.
