Anderson powers No. 23 BYU past Wyoming

LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) -- Ambrosia Anderson had 14 points and nine rebounds to lead No. 23 BYU to a 60-44 victory over conference rival Wyoming on Wednesday night.

The Cougars (13-1 4-0 Mountain West) used a 27-8 run during a 20-minute stretch spanning halftime to take a 38-20 lead with 12:29 left in the second half.

Wyoming (12-4, 2-3) shot a season-low 21.6 percent from the field.

The first-place Cougars, 8-0 on the road this season, were dominant inside as they outscored the Cowgirls 32-6 in the paint and outrebounded them 44-32.

After her first two baskets of the game, Anderson became the 18th player in BYU history to eclipse the 1,000-point mark. She has scored in double figures in every game for the Cougars this season and has led the team in scoring in all but one contest.

Lauren Riley added a career-high 14 points for BYU, and Dani Kubik had 11.

Hanna Zavecz led Wyoming with 15 points and nine rebounds, and Michelle Taylor added 11 points.

BYU scored the first seven points of the game, but Wyoming came back with a 12-4 run that put the Cowgirls up 12-11 with 13:30 to go in the first half.
