Boise State men's basketball loses 52-50 at home against Wyoming

January 11, 2014 

Boise State hit just one field goal in the last 9:50 of Saturday's 52-50 loss to Wyoming at Taco Bell Arena. The Cowboys' Larry Nance Jr. hit a baseline jumper with 1.6 seconds to play to give Wyoming the win. It was a season-low scoring output for the Broncos, who have lost two straight. Anthony Drmic had 20 points for the Broncos.

Halftime notes: Wyoming leads Boise State 25-23 after 20 minutes. The Cowboys' grind-it-out style has worked thus far on the typically high-powered Boise State offense. The Broncos shot 33.3 percent (8-of-24), and had eight turnovers. Anthony Drmic has 15 of the Broncos' 23 points.

Pre-game notes: Boise State (11-4, 1-1) is coming off a 69-66 loss to No. 13 San Diego State on Wednesday. The Broncos are taking on a Wyoming (9-6, 0-2) team coming off a 72-69 overtime home loss against New Mexico. The Cowboys are last in the Mountain West in scoring offense (68.1 ppg), but are No. 2 in scoring defense (61.7 ppg). Both teams feature excellent 3-point shooters — Boise State's Jeff Elorriaga is No. 2 nationally in 3-point percentage (53.8 percent), and Wyoming's Riley Grabau is No. 3 (53.3 percent). Boise State sophomore Mikey Thompson, averaging 9.3 points per game off the bench, did not play with a bruised right knee.
