Jamaal Franklin made an off-balance layup with three-tenths of a second left to give No. 22 San Diego State a thrilling 69-67 victory over No. 12 UNLV on Saturday in a marquee Mountain West Conference opener.

Franklin, who had 24 points and 10 rebounds, had just come back into the game after landing hard while going for a rebound and then sitting out for a possession. He set a screen for Xavier Thames, then got a pass back at the top of the key and drove to the basket.

On the inbound play, UNLV's Mike Moser stepped over the line and the Aztecs got the ball.

James Rahon added 22 points for SDSU (15-2), which won its eighth straight game. The Aztecs> shared the regular-season MWC title with BYU last year before winning the conference tournament and advancing to the NCAA regional semifinals.

Anthony Marshall tied his career high with 26 points for UNLV (16-3 ).
