LARAMIE – The University of Wyoming men’s basketball team has certainly made strides under first-year coach Jeff Linder. But if nothing else, a pair of games against Mountain West leader Boise State showed the Cowboys just how far they still have to go.

After cutting an 18-point deficit down to five late in the second half Monday, the Broncos used a 20-2 run to win a game that wasn’t indicative of what the final score read. On Wednesday, there were no heroic comebacks or rallies. Boise State showed why it is the cream of the crop in the conference from tip off to final buzzer.
