SAN DIEGO (AP) - Back-up forward Dwayne Polee tied his career-high with 16 points, including two 3-pointers and a three-point play during a 23-1 run that carried San Diego State to a 79-51 victory Tuesday night.
San Diego State (19-7, 7-5 Mountain West), which shot 68.2 percent from the field, came into the game on a two-game losing streak and in a three-way tie for third place. After sharing the regular-season league title the last two years, the Aztecs are fighting for a decent seed in the conference tournament next month.
Jamaal Franklin had a game-high 20 points for the Aztecs and Winston Shepard scored 12 points while J.J. O'Brien chipped in with 10.
Derrious Gilmore scored 15 and Matt Sellers had 10 for Wyoming (18-8, 4-8), which was out-rebounded 35-16 and shot only 37.7 percent.
