LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) -- Riley Grabau scored 16 points and Larry Nance Jr. added 15 to lead Wyoming to a 73-65 victory over Jackson State on Monday night.

Nathan Sobey and Josh Adams added 11 points each and Derek Cooke Jr. had a game-high 10 rebounds for Wyoming (3-1).

Julysses Nobles led Jackson State (1-4) with 23 points while Treshawn Bolden added 14.

Wyoming took its largest lead at 52-36 following a technical foul on Jackson State coach Wayne Brent, but the Tigers made it close down the stretch, helped by a spate of Cowboy turnovers. Nobles' 3-point play drew Jackson State within 59-54 at the 7:13 mark. Wyoming made 10 of 10 free throws in the final minutes to hold on.
