RENO, Nev. (AP) -- Jerry Evans Jr. scored 19 points to lead Nevada over San Jose State 81-57 Thursday night.

Deonte Burton added 14 points for the Wolf Pack (13-3 overall, 3-0 WAC), who matched their win total from last season and posted their first 10-game winning streak in five years.

James Kinney had 16 points and Stephon Smith added 14 for the Spartans (6-10, 0-2).

After falling behind 7-6 early in the game, Nevada began the rout with a 16-4 run capped by a four-point play by Evans to go ahead 22-11 with 9:21 remaining in the first half. The Spartans would get no closer than nine points the rest of the game.

The Wolf Pack hit a school-record 16 3-pointers, including five from Evans. Nevada also hit 31 of 57 shots from the floor (54.4 percent), including 16 of 32 (50 percent) from 3-point range.
