Broncos run win streak to 11 in 83-60 victory at Wyoming

 

Devonaire Doutrive scored 11 of his career-high 21 points in the final four minutes to help Boise State close the game on a 20-2 run and beat Wyoming 83-60, Monday at Arena-Auditorium. The victory pushes the Bronco win streak to a school-record 11 games and ties the program’s best start to a conference season at 7-0.

Boise State (11-1, 7-0 MW) withstood multiple runs from the Cowboys (7-3, 1-2 MW) to record its fourth 20-point win in conference play, highlighted by a plus-24 rebound margin and an 18-point advantage in the paint.
Abu Kigab and Mladen Armus owned the interior. Kigab scored 21 points, including 15 in the first half, and blocked a career-high five shots. Armus recorded his second double-double of the season with 12 points and 14 rebounds, including eight offensive boards. The Broncos outscored the Cowboys 16-0 in second-chance points.
The late onslaught was keyed by perimeter play. Doutrive drilled three three-pointers during the run and RayJ Dennis added one of his own.
The Broncos built a 15-point first-half lead, but Wyoming closed the gap to eight at the break. The start of the second half saw Boise State push its advantage to 18, but soon suffered a cold spell. While the Broncos went seven minutes scoring just one field goal, the Cowboys put together a 15-2 run to claw back within five points as the clock wound under eight minutes to play. That’s when the Broncos stepped on the gas one more time and ran away with the victory.

Boise State and Wyoming meet again Wednesday, in the second game of the series. Tipoff is set for 7 p.m. MT on CBS Sports Network.
