EL PASO, Texas (AP) Evan Gilyard scored 20 points, largely on 6-of-9 3-point shooting, and UTEP defeated Wyoming 76-65 in the third-place game of the Sun Bowl Invitational on Saturday night.

Wyoming (3-9) was led by Justin James with 22 points and seven rebounds. He averages 23 points and 9.6 rebounds per game. A.J. Banks had 18 points and eight rebounds for the Cowboys.

Gilyard made 3-of-4 3-pointers while UTEP stretched its lead from 49-38 to 63-45 with 8:39 remaining. Wyoming drew within 69-60 with 2:24 remaining but Lathon scored twice in the paint and made 3 of 4 free throws to rebuild an 11-point lead in the final minute.
