    LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) -- Jodi Bolerjack scored 22 points, including four 3-pointers, to lead Wyoming to a 59-52 win over New Mexico (No. 19 ESPN/USA Today, No. 20 AP) on Wednesday.

    The Cowgirls (17-6, 7-5 Mountain West Conference) led 31-28 at halftime and outscored the Lobos 10-5 in a key stretch in the second half to open up their biggest lead of the game at 50-41. New Mexico (18-7, 8-4) went on a 7-3 run late to pull within 53-48, but Bolerjack hit four free throws to help Wyoming hold on.

    Hanna Zavecz had 18 points and six assists and Erin Hicks pulled down nine rebounds for Wyoming.

    Wyoming held New Mexico's leading scorer, Dionne Marsh, who had been averaging 16.4 points per game, to just five points on 2-of-14 shooting.

    Wyoming has won five of its last seven games, while New Mexico has lost three of its last five.
