LAS VEGAS -- Jalen Harris scored 29 points, grabbed 14 rebounds and dished five assists and Nevada defeated rival UNLV for the sixth straight time, pulling out an 82-79 win in overtime on Wednesday night.

After Harris, the leading scorer in the Mountain West Conference, hit the go-ahead jumper with 1:21 to play, Bryce Hamilton missed on two possessions for the Runnin' Rebels.

It was UNLV's program record sixth overtime game this season.
Harris' overtime miss at the free throw line made him 11 of 15 from the foul line where the Wolf Pack were just 18 of 28 (64%). However, UNLV was worse, making 12 of 25.
Jazz Johnson added 19 points and Nisr Zouzoua 12 for Nevada (16-10, 9-5 Mountain West Conference.
