Wyoming sophomores Desmar Jackson and Amath M'Baye, the team's top two scorers, will not return to the program next season under new coach Larry Shyatt, the school announced Friday.

Jackson, a 6-foot-5 guard, led the Cowboys in points and steals in each of his two seasons. He was the Mountain West Conference's fifth-leading scorer this season, averaging 14.6 points.

M'Baye, a 6-foot-9 forward averaged 12 points and a team-leading 5.7 rebounds.

Shyatt, who agreed to terms last week on a five-year contract after serving as the associate head coach at Florida, declined further comment in the school's statement.
