LARAMIE – The University of Wyoming men’s basketball team has certainly made strides under first-year coach Jeff Linder. But if nothing else, a pair of games against Mountain West leader Boise State showed the Cowboys just how far they still have to go.

After cutting an 18-point deficit down to five late in the second half Monday, the Broncos used a 20-2 run to win a game that wasn’t indicative of what the final score read.
