Wyoming Defeats Bradley
LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) -- Luke Martinez made 6 of 10 shots from 3-point range and scored 20 points to lead Wyoming to a 66-49 victory against Bradley on Saturday night in the Mountain West-Missouri Valley Challenge.

Adam Waddell had 15 points and Leonard Washington 13 for the Cowboys (8-1), who have won six in a row for the first time since 2002-03.

Jordan Prosser scored 14 points and Taylor Brown 10 for the Braves (3-4), who lost their fourth straight.

After trailing by one at the half, Wyoming went on a 21-3 run, led by Waddell's eight points, to lead 41-24 with 14:06 to play. During that stretch, the Braves had 10 turnovers on 13 possessions.

Prosser's layup drew Bradley within eight, but Wyoming stretched the lead to 60-43 when Washington rebounded a teammate's missed free throw and dunked with 4:33 left.
