LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — Donovan Dent had 19 points and seven assists and Jaelen House added 17 points and eight rebounds, leading No. 25 New Mexico to a 91-73 victory over Wyoming on Tuesday night.

J.T. Toppin set a New Mexico freshman record with his eighth double-double, finishing with 11 points and 12 rebounds. He eclipsed the mark set by Kenny Thomas. Jamal Mashburn Jr. scored 15 points and Mustapha Amzil 13 points to lead a balanced effort by the Lobos (19-4, 7-3 Mountain West).

“The balance was great,” New Mexico coach Richard Pitino said after his team made 13 3-pointers. “You know the shot attempts all were really good. I thought we passed the ball well. We found shooters. We keep working on flow to where we’re not one dimensional. We had some moments that were really good.”

The Cowboys (12-11, 5-5) had previously beaten two other NCAA Tournament hopefuls, Nevada and Colorado State, in Laramie.
