Fresno State edges New Mexico in MWC tourney 65-60

LAS VEGAS (AP) Deshon Taylor gave Fresno State the lead with a 3-pointer and finished with 21 points to lead defending Mountain West Conference Tournament champion Fresno State to a 65-60 victory over New Mexico on Thursday.

Taylor's 3-pointer started a 7-0 run for a 60-54 lead with 1 1/2 minutes to go before Elijah Brown cut it to three with a trey. Fresno State Jahmel Taylor responded with a deep 3-pointer with 18 seconds left. Brown came back with a baseline 3-pointer but Deshon Taylor sank two free throws to ensure the win.

Jaron Hopkins added 12 points for the fourth-seeded Bulldogs (20-11), who reached 20 wins for the third time in four seasons and won their sixth straight game. They will play top-seeded Nevada in a Friday quarterfinal.
