Laramie, WY (Sports Network) - Hugh Greenwood tallied four points in the final nine seconds -- including a right side jumper which broke a tie game -- as 20th-ranked New Mexico held on for a 63-59 road victory versus Wyoming Wednesday at Arena-Auditorium.

Cameron Bairstow scored a game-high 17 points, while Greenwood recorded a double-double with 13 points and 10 rebounds for the Lobos (18-3, 5-1 MWC), who bounced back from a historically brutal showing Saturday, in which the team managed just 34 total points in a loss to San Diego State. Kendall Williams chipped in 12 points and six boards in the win.

Derrious Gilmore led Wyoming with 15 points on 5-of-7 shooting from 3-point range and Riley Grabau netted 11 points -- including the late game-tying 3- pointer with 15 seconds left -- for the Cowboys (15-5, 2-5), who have dropped three straight and four of their last five.
