Kendall Williams scored 13 points, capped by an emphatic dunk just before the final buzzer, and No. 19 New Mexico overcame an 11-point halftime deficit to defeat Fresno State 54-48 on Wednesday night.

Alex Kirk and Tony Snell added 10 points apiece for the Lobos (21-4, 8-2 Mountain West Conference).

Snell's 18-foot leaner with 16 seconds left and the shot clock about to expire sealed the victory.

Kevin Olekaibe led Fresno State (8-15, 2-8) with 11 points, while Kevin Foster had 10 points and 10 rebounds.
