Recap: Wyoming vs. Colorado

Laramie, WY (Sports Network) - Leonard Washington poured in a team-high 22 points and grabbed seven rebounds to lead Wyoming to a 76-69 win over 19th- ranked Colorado on Saturday.

Larry Nance Jr. had 14 points and seven rebounds and Josh Adams added 10 points for the Cowboys (8-0), who are off their best start since going 11-0 in 1987.

"This truly felt like it did 15 years ago. Walking out here tonight, I felt like our guys knew it was good to be a Poke," Wyoming coach Larry Shyatt said. "This was a great feeling for them. I believe it gave our players a huge lift when they came down on the court at the start of the game to see a great crowd and a great student crowd."

Spencer Dinwiddie had 24 points, six rebounds and four assists while Andre Roberson chipped in with 16 points and 12 boards for the Buffaloes (6-1), who will take on Colorado State on Wednesday.

The teams traded baskets for most of the first half. Jeremy Adams' jumper at the 2:52 mark gave the Buffs their biggest lead of the first half at 23-20, but Wyoming scored the next four points to take the lead. A Dinwiddie triple gave Colorado a 26-24 cushion and his layup at the buzzer gave Colorado a 28-26 lead at the break.

Trailing 34-33 with just over four minutes played in the second half, Nance Jr. buried a 3-ball to spark a 17-9 sequence to put the Cowboys up 51-42.

The Buffs chipped away and pulled within 55-50 with just under seven minutes left, but a 9-2 burst put Wyoming up 64-52. Colorado outscored 14-12 the rest of the way and the Cowboys held on for the win.
