Behind a pair of double-doubles from Leonard Washington and Larry Nance, Jr., the Wyoming Cowboys knocked off the 14th-ranked San Diego State Aztecs 58-45 in front of 9,573 Saturday at the Arena-Auditorium. Washinton finished with 14 points and 14 rebounds, while Nance had 11 points and 12 rebounds.

Wyoming put the clamps on San Diego State with their defense, as they held Aztecs to 28.8 percent shooting (17-59) from the field. They shot just 2-18 (11.1%) from 3-point range. Offensively, the Cowboys shot 10-17 (58.8%) in the second half and knocked down 8-of-12 free throws over the final 1:37 to preserve the upset.

Derrious Gilmore scored 13 points, while Josh Adams added 12. Wyoming shot 42.9 percent (18-42) from the field, 25.0 percent (4-16) from beyond the arc and 66.7 percent (18-27) from the free throw line. The Cowboys had 12 assists on their buckets.

The Aztecs (14-4, 2-2) were led by Jamaal Franklin with 13 points. Winston Shepard had 10 and Chase Tapley was held to only 9 points.

Wyoming (15-2, 2-2) enjoyed a solid start, as they jumped to an 11-4 advantage behind six early points from Josh Adams, which included a highlight finish on an alley oop from Riley Grabau. The Aztecs struggled with three early turnovers and started the game 2-for-11 from the field. San Diego State’s shot only 4-24 (16.7%) in the first half. Even though UW cooled off from the field, the Pokes took advantage of 8 Aztec turnovers and led 20-9 at halftime.

UW’s next game will be on Wednesday, Jan. 24th at UNLV.
