Nevada produced one of the most incredible basketball comebacks ever to beat New Mexico 105-104 in overtime.

At one stage, Nevada trailed by 25 points away from home and looked dead and buried.

They still trailed by 14 points with 74 seconds remaining but conjured up one of the most amazing finishes you are likely to see.

The Wolf Pack made six straight three-pointers, some of which were real Hail Mary efforts, as their opponents failed at the freethrow line.

It was the eighth-largest second half comeback in NCAA history and the first time Nevada ever won away to New Mexico.
