LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) - Jason McManamen and Josh Adams led a school-record 3-point barrage in Wyoming’s 84-65 victory over Utah State on Saturday.

The Cowboys (12-13, 5-7 Mountain West) made 20 3-pointers, tying the season high in Division I, on 38 attempts. Wyoming’s previous best was 14 against Hawaii-Pacific in 1999.

McManamen made a career-high six treys and scored 20 points. Adams had five 3-pointers and 19 points with seven assists for Wyoming, which shot 50 percent.

Jalen Moore scored 17 points and Chris Smith had 13 for the Aggies (11-11, 3-8), who shot 60 percent in the first half but still trailed 38-37 after the Cowboys hit 10 3-pointers, four by McManamen. The Aggies dropped to 37 percent in the second half.

Five Cowboys hit 3-pointers in a 21-2 run to open the second half and go ahead 59-29. A McManamen 3-pointer with 8:34 left gave Wyoming its biggest lead of 24 points.
