ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- Tre'Von Willis scored 25 points and Quintrell Thomas and Oscar Bellfield combined for eight of UNLV's 10 points in overtime in a 77-74 victory over New Mexico on Wednesday night.

Thomas finished with 19 points and 13 rebounds and Bellfield had 15 points for the Rebels (21-7, 9-5 Mountain West).

Dairese Gary had a career-high 26 points, and Drew Gordon added 15 points and 14 rebounds for the Lobos (17-11, 5-8), who lost their fourth straight.

UNLV missed six consecutive foul shots in the final 8 minutes of regulation but took advantage of a key miss by New Mexico late.

After Gary made just 1-of-2 free throws with 27.2 seconds to put the Lobos up 67-65, Bellfield scored on a layup that forced overtime.

UNLV took a 72-70 lead on Thomas' putback with 2:55 remaining in OT and led the rest of the way.
