LAS VEGAS (AP) - Wink Adams had 11 points to lead UNLV to a 46-43 victory against Air Force on Wednesday.
UNLV (21-8, 9-6 Mountain West Conference) led only 41-39 with 1:46 to play after Air Force's Andrew Henke connected on a pair of 3-pointers. But the Rebels scored five points on their next three possessions, including a layup by Adams as the shot clock expired and three free throws.
Joe Darger and Rene Rougeau added nine points each for UNLV, which only shot 30 percent and connected on just 6-of-23 3-point attempts.
UNLV trailed by eight points with five minutes to play in the first half before going on a 9-0 run to take a one-point advantage at halftime. It opened the second half with a 9-2 outburst.
Henke had 19 points for Air Force (9-19, 0-15), which has not won since Dec. 28 at Dartmouth.
