LARAMIE, Wyo. -- Leonard Washington's 16 points, 12 rebounds, five steals and three blocks spurred Wyoming to a 68-48 win over Nevada on Wednesday night.

Nevada had drawn within 47-36 after Burton stole the ball and made a floater. But Adams sparked a 9-0 spurt with two fast-break layup attempts that resulted in four free throws and he also sank a 3 to give Wyoming a 56-36 advantage.
