ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Led by Carlton Bragg's 16 points, six New Mexico players reached double figures as the Lobos pummeled Wyoming 83-53 on Saturday.


Vance Jackson added a double-double for New Mexico (9-9, 3-3 Mountain West) with 13 points and 10 rebounds, while reserve Keith McGee had a career-high 14 and Anthony Mathis had 12 points with eight rebounds.

The Cowboys (4-14, 0-5) got 12 from Justin James and 10 from A.J. Banks.

But as a team Wyoming shot 35 percent from the field and 27 percent on 3-pointers.

The game got away early as New Mexico built up an eight-point advantage over the first 10 minutes of the game, then put things out of doubt with a 14-0 run to go up 38-16.

New Mexico dominated every statistical category, but perhaps the most telling stat was the 20 assists the Lobos collected on their 28 baskets. Five different players had at least three assists, with Jackson's five leading the way.

Likewise, New Mexico held a 29-8 advantage on fast break points after forcing 17 Wyoming turnovers.

It was a brief home visit for the Lobos, who head back out to UNLV on Tuesday. The teams just played each other Jan. 8, which the Rebels won 85-58.
