POCATELLO, Idaho (AP) Derrious Gilmore scored 18 points to lead Wyoming past Idaho State 80-56 Thursday night.
It was the debut for Idaho State interim coach Deane Martin. He replaced Joe O'Brien, who resigned earlier in the week.
Idaho State (2-9) appeared a bit tentative early but managed to stay close to Wyoming through most of the first half.
But the Cowboys (12-2), who led 33-31 with almost 4 minutes left in the first half, finished on a 12-4 run to take a 45-35 lead into the locker room. Gilmore, who went 4 for 6 from beyond the arc, hit three of those during the final minutes of the half.
Luke Martinez had 16 points and Adam Waddell scored 13 for Wyoming. Kenny McGowen was the only player in double figures for the Bengals with 23 points.
