LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) -- Brad Jones scored 32 points, making 17-of-18 free throws, and had five assists as Wyoming beat San Diego State 80-71 Saturday and snap a four-game losing streak.

Brandon Ewing contributed 16 points for the Cowboys (14-12 overall, 5-7 Mountain West) who outrebounded the Aztecs 42-30.

The loss broke a five-game winning streak by SDSU (18-8, 7-5).

Brandon Heath led the Aztecs with 22 points on 7-of-22 shooting from the field. Jerome Habel added 18, and Mohamed Abukar 16.
