LARAMIE, Wyo. -- Derrious Gilmore scored 21 points and sank 6 of 10 from beyond the arc to lead Wyoming over Oklahoma Panhandle State 74-55 on Saturday.
Bill Lee paced the Aggies with 18 points and nine rebounds.
Wyoming struggled for 30 minutes against their Division II foe until putting together a 25-2 run. Washington started the spurt by tipping in his own miss to snap a 49-all tie, and moments later Nance added a highlight-reel putback by soaring to grab an offensive rebound and dunking it with two hands, all in one motion.
A follow-up basket by Panhandle State's Kysahn Sands with 10:33 remaining tied the contest but only set the stage for the Cowboys' big push at the end.
