LARAMIE, Wyo. --- Fresno State senior guard Tyler Johnson scored 24 points as the Bulldogs' men's basketball team had its five-game winning streak snapped with a 72-66 loss at Wyoming on Tuesday night.
The loss was the first for Fresno State (13-14, 6-8 Mountain West) since falling 75-73 in overtime at UNLV on Jan. 25.
The teams played close for a half before Wyoming built a 40-31 lead. Fresno State answered by going on a 9-0 run to tie the game at 40-40.
Wyoming (17-9, 8-5 MW), which won its third straight, grabbed the lead for good moment later when Josh Adams, who had 10 points, hit a fadeaway jumper to break the 40-all tie with 11:21 remaining.
Nathan Sobey scored a career-high 26 points and Larry Nance Jr. added 17 to lead the Cowboys offensively.
Nance was 7-of-9 shooting before he crashed to the floor with 14:51 to play and suffered a knee injury. The Cowboys' leader in scoring, rebounds, blocks and steals laid on the court for several minutes holding his right knee before being helped off, unable to put any weight on the leg. Nance did not return.
Fresno State wraps up its two-game road trip on Saturday at Utah State.
