    RENO, Nev. -- Jeff Ledbetter scored 25 points, including five 3-pointers, as Idaho beat Nevada 67-59 on Thursday night.

    Deremy Geiger scored 10 points, all in the second half, and sank two free throws for a 65-59 lead with 17 seconds left as the Vandals (16-11, 8-6) earned the critical Western Athletic Conference road victory. Shawn Henderson added 10 points.

    Deonte Burton scored 19 points to lead the Wolf Pack (11-16, 7-6). The point guard hit a 3-pointer to cut Idaho's lead to 61-59 with 35 seconds to play. But two free throws by Ledbetter, Geiger's foul shots and a basket by Henderson sealed it for Idaho.

    Malik Story finished with 13 points for Nevada, Olek Czyz scored 11 and Dario Hunt grabbed 19 rebounds.

    Idaho swept the two-game series with Nevada for the first time in 12 years, winning 72-67 on Jan. 12 in Moscow, Idaho.
