LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) -- Leonard Washington and Francisco Cruz scored 16 points apiece and Wyoming throttled No. 11 UNLV's high-scoring offense in a 68-66 victory Saturday.

Luke Martinez added 15 points -- all on 3-pointers -- and Adam Waddell scored 14 for Wyoming (18-5, 4-3 Mountain West). The win snapped a four-game losing streak against UNLV (21-4, 5-2) and was Wyoming's first victory against a top 25 team since beating New Mexico in 1996.

UNLV had two chances after Martinez missed a long 3-point attempt for Wyoming with 22 seconds left, but the Runnin' Rebels missed both attempts -- one a two-pointer to tie it, the other a 3 for the win -- snapping their five-game winning streak.

Quintrell Thomas led UNLV with 15 points. Anthony Marshall and Oscar Bellfield contributed 12 apiece.
