Billy White scored 19 points, including 17 in the second half, and grabbed 12 rebounds to lead San Diego State to a 79-68 victory against Wyoming on Tuesday night.

Lorrenzo Wade scored 14 points, Richie Williams finished with 13 and Ryan Amoroso added 12 points for the Aztecs (17-9, 7-5 Mountain West).

The Cowboys (10-15, 3-9) led 35-32 at the break, but White's put-back with 18:21 remaining gave the Aztecs their first lead of the game. He and Wade combined for 22 of SDSU's first 23 second-half points, and the Aztecs led 55-47 with 9:22 to play.

Wyoming's Tyson Johnson converted a three-point play with 8:55 remaining to spark a 7-3 run that cut the lead to four points, but that was as close as the Cowboys would get. Williams hit back-to-back layups to extend the advantage to 68-59 with 3:36 remaining. White was fouled on a dunk and converted the three-point play a minute and a half later to help seal the win.

Johnson led Wyoming with a career-high 18 points. Ryan Dermody added 14 points and Brandon Ewing scored 12.
