With the 13-point victory, Fresno State secured its first Mountain West conference win.
Fresno State held Wyoming to a season-low 24 percent (12-for-50) from the floor and the Pokes converted just 35 percent (7-of-20) of their free throw attempts.
After missing the Bulldogs' last game, Tyler Johnson (ankle) and Kevin Foster (death of grandfather) returned to starting lineup. Johnson scored 18 points, including a perfect 6-for-6 mark at the free throw line, in 30 minutes of action while Foster added six points and four points all at the charity stripe.
Freshman Marvelle Harris made his second straight start on the wing and registered five points, three rebounds and two assists.
Fresno State shot 51.5 percent (17-of-33) on field goal attempts, including a red-hot 64.7 percent (11-of-17) in the first half.
Fresno State's 26-16 halftime lead was its largest of the season over a Division I opponent.
The victory came despite the fact that the Bulldogs did not make a 3-pointer for the first time in 554 games. The last time Fresno State did not convert a 3-pointer was Dec. 2, 1995 when the 'Dogs lost 59-54 to Princeton at Selland Arena in the Coors Light Classic.
Fresno State improved to 5-1 when dishing out at least 10 assists in a game.
