LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — Malcolm Thomas and Brian Carlwell both scored 15 points and No. 9 San Diego State beat Wyoming 85-58 on Tuesday night, rebounding from its second loss of the season with a win in an arena where the Aztecs haven't been very successful.

The Aztecs (28-2, 13-2 Mountain West) faced Wyoming for the second time this season after losing to No. 3 BYU. San Diego State beat the Cowboys (10-19, 3-12) 96-57 on Jan. 29.

The Aztecs lost in Laramie in 2009 and 2010 and in 24 of their last 30 games in the arena.

Wyoming used a full-court press to take a 15-14 lead 9:35 into the first half on a basket by Desmar Jackson, who led the Cowboys with 16 points.

The Aztecs used two 11-0 runs keyed by Thomas and Carlwell to pull away and Wyoming never got closer than 16 points in the second half.

It was SDSU's largest margin of victory in Laramie. In 2003, the Aztecs won by 13 points.

San Diego State extended its streak of games without losing two in a row to 48.

The 6-foot-9 Thomas had 11 rebounds and the 6-11 Carlwell had eight. Both shot 6 of 9 from the field and recorded two blocks.

Kawhi Leonard added 12 points and nine rebounds, and D.J. Gay had 11 points for the Aztecs, who shot 52.5 percent from the field and outrebounded the Cowboys 43-26.

Djibril Thiam had 13 points for Wyoming, which shot 42.6 percent.

The Cowboys lost their second consecutive game, their first two-game losing streak under interim coach Fred Langley, who took over after Heath Schroyer was fired on Feb. 7.
