Boise State escapes Laramie with another conference victory

Troy Babbitt-USA TODAY Sports

Final: Boise State 81, Wyoming 71

Lonnie Jackson put the Broncos on his back in a game where James Webb was uncharacteristically quiet, and the Broncos extended their "new win streak" to two as they dropped the Wyoming Cowboys in Laramie. Lonnie Jackson absorbed some of Nick Duncan's hot 3-shooting and dropped in all of his season-high 21 points from downtown. James Webb was a bit out of sorts after two straight double-double performances and only was able to contribute 9 points before fouling out in the final minute. Webb also contributed 7 rebounds.

No Bronco could match the performance of Cowboy guard Jason McManamen, who pitched in 25 points and kept Wyoming in the game. Ultimately, the Broncos hot-shooting in the second half and big edge in 2nd chance points allowed them to keep the lead. Also, Chandler Hutchison did this:

The win moves the Broncos to 15-5 on the year and 6-1 in Mountain West play ahead of a tough trip to Vegas on Wednesday.
