LARAMIE, Wyo. -- Nevada relived last season's double-overtime loss at Wyoming by watching video of fans storming the floor every day for the past week, and even just before taking the court Saturday night.
There were no fans storming the floor this time, as No. 7 Nevada easily beat Wyoming 82-49 for its 10th straight win.
Nevada avenged last season's loss at Laramie, when Wyoming defeated the then-No. 23 ranked Wolf Pack 104-103 in two OTs.
"We saw that film over and over again -- losing in double overtime, the crowd rushing the court -- you just don't want that same feeling," Thurman said.
Justin James led Wyoming (6-19, 2-10) with 16 points, followed by TJ Taylor with 13. The Cowboys were just 15 for 50 (a season-low 30 percent) overall and 6 of 24 from the 3-point line. The 49 points scored was the fewest this season by Wyoming.
Entering the game, the Cowboys had won five of their last six home games against ranked foes dating to 2012.
"I thought defensively we could have played a little bit better, but it's good anytime you win on the road by that amount," Nevada coach Eric Musselman said.
Wyoming coach Allen Edwards said Nevada played with great energy and effort for the full 40 minutes and never deviated from what it does best, which is play unselfish basketball.
"They play together; they played hard on both ends of the floor," Edwards said.
Nevada: The Wolf Pack notch a road win at a venue that visiting teams find difficult to play in because of the 7,220-foot elevation of Laramie.
"It's just so hard to get here," Musselman said. "Guys are tired."
Wyoming: The Cowboys continue to languish in second-to-last place in the Mountain West, but still have an 8-4 advantage at home against Nevada.
James lamented the lack of defense on the part of the Cowboys.
"We gave them anything they wanted," he said. "It's hard to win when they're getting dunks and open 3s."
Nevada has another road game when it visits San Diego State on Wednesday night, which will be followed by a March 9 meeting between the two teams to end the season.
Wyoming gets to stay home while hosting UNLV on Tuesday.
