LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — Hayden Dalton and Cody Kelley hit late 3-pointers to help Wyoming break away and take a 74-62 victory over San Jose State on Saturday and secure the seventh seed for the Mountain West Conference Tournament.

The Cowboys (18-13, 8-10) led by six with two minutes to go when Kelley and Dalton made 3-pointers less than 30 seconds apart. Kelley and Justin James added two free throws each in the final minute.

James led Wyoming with 15 points. Alan Herndon had 13, Dalton 11 and Kelley and Jeremy Lieberman 10 each. The Cowboys made 11 of 21 3-pointers, the eighth straight game they have made double-digit treys.

Brandon Clarke scored 20 points to lead the Spartans (14-15, 8-10), who have lost four straight and, as the ninth seed, will play eighth seed Utah State in the MWC Tournament's first round. Clark blocked three shots and is now alone in second place on the school career list with 114. Ryan Welage added 19 points.
