    RUSTON, La. (AP) -- Nick Fazekas scored 21 points and grabbed 18 rebounds to lead Nevada past Louisiana Tech, 64-56, on Thursday night.

    Ramon Sessions added 12 points, seven assists and two steals for Nevada (10-3, 3-0 WAC), which led 26-21 at halftime and maintained a lead of five points or more through most of the second half.

    Paul Millsap scored 13 points and Corey Dean 11 for Louisiana Tech (6-6, 1-2), which shot only 34.5 percent from the field. Nevada, which struggled with its shooting early, finished at 43.1 percent after going 13-of-24 (54.2 percent) from the floor in the second half.

    Fazekas' 7-of-8 free throw shooting led an onslaught at the foul line, where Nevada scored 18 of its points. Tech was 9-of-15 from the foul line.

    Fazekas was a key factor in Nevada's 40-36 rebounding edge. He also blocked a shot.
