Provo, UT – 

No. 14 BYU Men’s basketball wrapped up its non-conference schedule with a 94-68 victory over the Wyoming Cowboys Saturday afternoon at the Marriott Center.

Atiki Ally-Atiki was the most efficient player on the floor Saturday afternoon, scoring a career-high 14 points on 7-of-10 shooting while grabbing eight rebounds. The best part about Junior’s forward performance was he didn’t have a single turnover in 18 minutes of play off the bench, and was a plus 20.

Trevin Knell and Noah Waterman also added 17 points each in the victory. Both combined for 53% (8of-15)  from 3-point range. Knell and Waterman both are shooting over 40 percent from three this year and as a team, the Cougars shot 38% from downtown.
