RENO, Nev. (AP) - D. J. Fenner scored a career-high 30 points as Nevada held on against a late Air Force rally to win it 83-76 on Wednesday night.

Fenner was 11 of 18 from the floor for the Wolf Pack (16-3, 5-1 Mountain West), who have won four-straight. Marcus Marshall added 25 points and Cameron Oliver 10.

Marshall hit a 3-pointer and a layup early in the second half to help the Wolf Pack to a 51-38 lead but Air Force surged 14-2 after that to pull within one, 53-52, with 11:37 remaining. Marshall sank two more 3-pointers back-to-back to stretch it to 76-68 with 1:18 to go and a Fenner layup closed out the scoring with a second left.

Fenner sank two quick 3s early in the first half to help Nevada to a 13-4 start and the Wolf Pack led 42-27 at intermission.

Jacob Van scored 17 points for the Falcons (9-10, 2-4).
