LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) -Jimmer Fredette and freshman Tyler Haws both scored 22 points and No. 16 BYU rolled past Wyoming 85-63 on Saturday.
The Cougars (25-3, 10-2 Mountain West Conference) led comfortably the entire way to stay within one-half game of first-place and 12th-ranked New Mexico, which beat Air Force on Saturday.
Freshman Desmar Jackson scored a season-high 26 points for Wyoming (2-11, 9-18), which has lost seven straight games and 10 of 11.
BYU led 40-28 at halftime, only to see Wyoming cut the lead to eight points with 10 minutes remaining. But Jonathan Tavernari's 3-pointer and Charles Abouo's dunk ignited a 16-3 run and the Cougars cruised from there.
Haws, who scored 24 points in the first game against Wyoming this season, was 6 of 15 from the field, but a perfect 10 of 10 from the free-throw line. He grabbed eight rebounds. Fredette scored 15 points in the second half.
