PROVO, Utah (AP) -- Keena Young scored a career high 29 points, including 21 in the second half, and pulled down 10 rebounds to lead Brigham Young past Wyoming 89-81 Tuesday night.

Wyoming (11-7, 2-2 Mountain West) was able to chip away at the Cougar lead and closed to within five at 82-77 on a basket by Eric Platt with 1:27 remaining, but could get no closer.

In the first half, the Cowboys led by as many as 10 when James Spencer hit a jump shot with 13:39 remaining until halftime. The Cougars closed the half on a 10-3 run capped by a 3-pointer by Jonathan Tavernari.

Wyoming was led by Brandon Ewing and Daaron Brown who each scored 22 points. Brown also pulled down a game-high 18 rebounds.
