TULSA, Okla. (AP) _ Nick Fazekas scored a career-high 33 points and Kevin Pinkney added 21 as Nevada beat Tulsa 75-to-69.

Fazekas and Pinkney spurred an 18-to-7 run in the second half after Nevada led 29-27 at intermission.

Tulsa was trailing 33-31 when Anthony Price was fouled while shooting and Pinkney was hit with a technical foul for slamming the ball.

Price and Seneca Collins combined to miss all four free throws.

A short time later, TU took a 35-34 lead, but the momentum shifted and Nevada took control for good.

Price led Tulsa with 18 points, McDade had a career-high 17 points and Jarius Glenn had 15 points and eight rebounds as Tulsa lost at home for the seventh time in nine games.

The loss drops TU to 3-and-12 overall and 0-and-6 in Western Athletic Conference play.
