LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — Andre Spight scored 24 points and handed out 10 assists and Northern Colorado turned back Wyoming 91-84 on Tuesday night for its fourth straight win.

Jalen Sanders added 16 points and he and Spight each had four of the Bears' 14 3-pointers on the night. Jordan Davis and Anthony Johnson both scored 13 and Roberto Vercellino added 11 points off the bench.

Justin James notched a season-high 25 points for the Cowboys (9-4), while Hayden Dalton scored 13 and Alan Herndon chipped in with 10 points and nine rebounds. Nyaires Redding and Louis Adams combined to score 21 off the bench.

Wyoming had a 54-34 advantage in points in the paint, but the Cowboys couldn't keep up with the Bears from 3-point range, making just 3 of 9 attempts.

Wyoming got within a point seven times in the second half before James' layup finally pushed the Cowboys in front 72-71 with 7:21 to play. But Vercellino hit two free throws and Spight hit two 3-pointers and scored eight in a 10-4 run that put the Bears back on top for good.

Northern Colorado won for the ninth time in 10 games, while Wyoming saw its three-game win streak end.
