LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) - Taylor Broekhuis had 16 points and nine rebounds to lead Air Force to a 57-48 win over Wyoming on Saturday night.
Wyoming (15-4, 2-4) was paced by Leonard Washington's 19 points and nine rebounds, while Derrious Gilmore added 15 points. Washington scored 14 in the first half but took only three shots after intermission.
