ABOUT WYOMING: The Cowboys (16-11, 6-8 MW) come to Boise on a two-game slide and trying to stay in the race for a first-round bye at the Mountain West Championship. Wyoming is led by Justin James (15.2 ppg) and Hayden Dalton (12.3 ppg), who both come off the bench.
All-Time Series: Wyoming leads 13-9. The Broncos have won the last three meetings.

SIMILAR CIRCUMSTANCES: Boise State enters its game against Wyoming coming off a loss, just as it did prior to the Jan. 28 meeting in Laramie. The Broncos made 13 three-pointers on their way to an 80-65 win over the Cowboys, starting a four-game winning streak.

LOOKING FOR 10: Boise State has won 10 Mountain West games each of the last two seasons. The Broncos have won 10 league games three straight years just once in program history (1987-89; Big Sky).

DOING IT ALL: Chandler Hutchison leads the Broncos in points (424), rebounds (203) and steals (30). Hutchison also ranks second in assists (56). Only three times has one player led the Broncos in points, rebounds and steals for a season. It has never been done with points, rebounds and assists.

JOIN THE CLUB: Chandler Hutchison has 424 points on the season, the 60th 400-point season in Boise State history and No. 50 on the all-time single-season scoring list. Hutchison also has 203 rebounds, registering the 18th 400-point, 200-rebound season in program history. He is the sixth player in program history to rack up 400 points, 200 rebounds and 50 assists in one season.
