SEATTLE (AP) — Deonte Burton scored 29 points and had a career-high six steals to help Nevada beat Washington 76-73 on Saturday night.

Burton scored Nevada's final nine points, including two 3-pointers to help hold off the Huskies, which had rallied from an 18-point second-half deficit to take a 61-60 lead. But Burton answered with a three-point play of his own and the Wolf Pack never trailed again.

Malik Story had 15 points and eight rebounds for Nevada (5-4). Devonte Elliott scored nine of his 11 points in the second half.

C.J. Wilcox scored 15 of his 21 points in the second half to lead Washington (4-4), which had won two straight. Scott Suggs added 19 points, Abdul Gaddy had 16 and Aziz N'Diaye had 11.

Nevada led 53-35 with 14:35 remaining before the Huskies used a 20-2 run to tie the game at 55 with 7:34 remaining.
