LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) -- Brandon Ewing scored 20 points and Brad Jones added 19 to help lead Wyoming to a 72-54 victory against TCU on Wednesday night.

Mikhail Linskens went 6-of-6 to add 14 points for the Cowboys -- all in the first half. His 3-pointer with nine minutes remaining in the first half capped a 13-2 run that gave Wyoming a 23-15 lead. The 7-footer hit another 3-pointer three and half minutes later to spark a 12-0 run, and he scored the Cowboys' final four points of the period to put Wyoming ahead 39-26 at halftime.

The Horned Frogs went on an 8-0 run midway through the second half to pull within 54-43, but Ewing and Jones combined for 10 of the game's next 17 points to extend Wyoming's lead to 68-46.

The Cowboys (10-13, 3-7 Mountain West) never led by less than 18 points the rest of the way.

Jason Ebie, Henry Salter and Kevin Langford each scored 10 points for the Horned Frogs (12-11, 4-6).
