LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) -- Cameron Bairstow scored 15 points and Cleveland Thomas hit the go-ahead 3-pointer in overtime, as New Mexico defeated Wyoming 72-69 on Wednesday night.

Alex Kirk had 12 points and blocked a layup by Riley Grabau with 15 seconds left to help the Lobos (11-3, 2-0 Mountain West) to their fourth straight win. Thomas finished with 12 points and Kendall Williams added 10 points for New Mexico.

Grabau scored a career-high 24 points for Wyoming (9-6, 0-2) but missed a 3-pointer that could have sent the game into a second overtime. Sobey added 16 points and Josh Adams had 12 for the Cowboys.
