MOSCOW, Idaho – Deremy Geiger scored 18 points and Jeff Ledbetter scored 17 to lead Idaho to a 72-67 victory over Nevada Wednesday night.

Kyle Barone had 13 points and seven rebounds and Luiz Toledo added 11 points and six boards for the Vandals (10-6, 4-1), who won their fourth in a row in WAC play.

Deonte Burton led all scorers with 23 points on 8-of-12 shooting for the Wolf Pack (4-13, 1-3). Duke transfer Olek Czyz had 14 points, 10 rebounds and five assists for Nevada.

Malik Story also scored 14 points. His 3-pointer with 24 seconds remaining cut Idaho’s lead to 69-67, but Shawn Henderson made a free throw for the Vandals and after Story missed what would have been a tying 3, Geiger was fouled and made two free throws with 3 seconds left to complete the scoring.
