Desmar Jackson tied his season-high 21 points and JayDee Luster scored a career-best 16 as Wyoming defeated Centenary 76-49 on Monday night.

Djibril Thiam added 12 points and 12 rebounds for the Cowboys (6-6), who ran their win streak to three.

A free throw by Centenary's Aaron Harwell narrowed the margin to 55-41 with 6:39 remaining, but Wyoming closed on a 21-8 roll.

Jackson converted two steals into dunks midway through the first half during a 15-2 spurt that snapped a 5-5 tie and put the Cowboys in control.
