Recap: Wyoming vs. Boise State

Laramie, WY (Sports Network) - Jeff Elorriaga drilled a 3-pointer at the buzzer to lift the Boise State Broncos to a thrilling 63-61 win over the Wyoming Cowboys in the Mountain West Conference opener for both teams at Arena Auditorium.

Elorriaga finished by shooting 6-of-10 from 3-point range on his way to 18 points for Boise State (13-2, 1-0 MWC), which has won seven straight games. Anthony Drmic also netted 18 points, while Igor Hadziomerovic added 11 points for the visitors.

For Wyoming (13-1, 0-1), Derrious Gilmore scored 17 points, Riley Grabau had 10 points, and Josh Adams and Leonard Washington chipped in 12 points apiece. The loss ends the Cowboys' perfect season, leaving only Arizona, Michigan, and Duke unbeaten in Division I.

The Broncos shot 12-of-29 from the field in the first half, including 6-of-10 from beyond the arc, as they took a 31-26 lead into intermission. The Cowboys kept the game close by also draining six 3-pointers.

Wyoming opened the second half on a 19-4 run to take a 45-35 lead with 11:29 left to play, but Boise State answered with a 22-5 spurt of its own to take a 57-50 lead with under three minutes remaining in the game. The Cowboys would not go away quietly however, and a pair of Grabau free throws with 44 seconds left capped a 9-0 surge and give them a 59-57 lead. The Broncos took a one- point lead on an Elorriaga 3-pointer, but the Cowboys retook the advantage after a 2-of-2 trip to the line for Adams. Boise State was left with one last possession, and Elorriaga came up clutch again by drilling the game-winning trey.

Boise State outscored Wyoming in the paint, 24-14.
