BOISE, Idaho -- RJ Williams came off the bench to score 18 points on 7-of-8 shooting and he added four steals as Boise State breezed to a 77-52 victory over Wyoming on Saturday.
Wyoming missed 16 of its 22 first-half shots, including a 0-for-11 effort by Justin James who came in leading the Cowboys (5-15, 1-6) in scoring at 20.5 points per game. Wyoming whiffed on all seven 3-point tries and trailed 28-14 at intermission. The 14 first-half points wasn't a season-low for Wyoming.
