LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) -- Leonard Washington scored 23 points and grabbed 12 rebounds - his second straight double-double - to lead Wyoming over TCU 71-59 on Tuesday night, giving the Cowboys 20 wins for the first time in nine years.

Wyoming (20-9, 6-7 Mountain West), which had only one turnover, got 19 points from Francisco Cruz and 14 from Adam Waddell.

J.R. Cadot scored 11 while Hank Thorns and Kyan Anderson added 10 apiece for the Horned Frogs (17-12, 7-6).

Wyoming made 13 of its first 17 shots to go up 29-15. During that stretch, Cruz was 4 of 5, including three layups and a 3-pointer, plus three assists.

TCU hung tough, drawing within 47-42 on a 3-pointer by Thorns with 15:51 remaining. But the Cowboys then scored six straight, including dunks by Waddell and Washington, to build the margin back to 11.
