PROVO, Utah (AP) - Jimmer Fredette scored 38 points and No. 3 BYU beat Wyoming 102-78 Saturday.

Charles Abouo scored 21 of his 25 points in the second half for the Cougars (28-3, 14-2 Mountain West Conference).

Abouo's individual 8-0 run early in the second half helped BYU seize control after it had a 38-35 lead at halftime.

Francisco Cruz scored 13 of his 18 points in the first half for Wyoming (10-20, 3-13). Daylen Harrison and Amath M'Baye had 12 points apiece.

Fredette, one of the favorites for national player of the year, and Jackson Emery helped BYU grab a share of the Mountain West Conference title in their final home game. The Cougars will be the top seed for next weeks' conference tourney by virtue of their two wins over No. 9 San Diego State.

Emery finished with 18 points, including back-to-back 3-pointers with about five minutes left that sealed the victory. Freshman Kyle Collinsworth added 11 points and a team-high eight rebounds.
