LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) - Sean Ogirri scored 19 points to lead Wyoming past Denver 62-54 on Saturday.
Ogirri hit six 3-pointers as Wyoming moved to 5-0 for the first time since the 1997-1998 season.
Rob Lewis scored 17 points and Rate Rohnert added 11 for Denver (0-4).
Brandon Ewing finished with 16 points for the Cowboys.
After scoring 202 points in their previous two games and averaging 91 for the season, the Cowboys were slowed down by Denver's Princeton-style offense.
Wyoming led 29-27 at halftime, but Denver led three times in the second half, the last on a 3-pointer by Kyle Lewis with 9:38 to play. Ogirri answered with a 3-pointer, the Cowboys went on a 15-3 run, and Wyoming led by as much as 11 in the final minutes.
