AIR FORCE ACADEMY, Colo. (AP) - Caleb Martin scored 23 points, Kendall Stephens added 21 on all 3-pointers and Nevada pulled away over the last 10 minutes on Saturday to defeat Air Force 86-75.

Jordan Caroline added 17 points and Cody Martin 14 for the Wolf Pack (15-3, 4-0 Mountain West Conference), who had 10 straight wins over conference opponents.

Caleb Martin hit four 3-pointers and Stephens was 7 of 15 behind the arc as Nevada went 15 of 31 from distance. Caroline and Cody Martin both had eight rebounds.

A 9-0 run in the middle of the second half gave Nevada breathing room. Caleb Martin started it with a layup at the 11:51 mark and Stephens followed with a 3-pointer before Martin and Caroline hit a pair of free throws, making it 68-57 with 8:16 remaining.

Trevor Lyons scored five straight for the Falcons (6-9, 0-3) to make it a five point game with 5½ minutes to go but a 3-point play by Caleb Martin and a 3 by Stephens settled the Wolf Pack down.

Lavelle Scottie had 16 points for Air Force and Ryan Swan 15.
