DENVER BRONCO UPDATE

BRONCOS-FLOURISHING COORDINATORS

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - The more the Denver Broncos win, the better the chance they lose - coordinators, that is.

Defensive boss Jack Del Rio and his offensive counterpart, Mike McCoy, figure to be hot commodities for any head coaching vacancies when the season finally winds down. That's simply the price of success.

Coach John Fox says: "You like to see people get opportunities and have those options. I'm sure it will be no different this year."

The Broncos (11-3) have won nine straight heading into a game against Cleveland (5-9) on Sunday.

WASHINGTON AND POKES RIDE 2ND-HALF SURGE TO DOWN GAUCHOS, 56-40

Laramie, Wyo. (Dec. 21, 2012) – The University of Wyoming men’s basketball team matched its best start in team history by winning its 12th-consecutive game with a 56-40 victory over the UC Santa Barbara on Friday in the Double AA.

Senior forward Leonard Washington led all scorers with 17 points while pulling down 11 rebounds for his fifth double-double of the season. Fellow senior Luke Martinez chipped in 14 points and four steals for the Pokes.

The Cowboys rode a 32-17 second half to down the Gauchos, tying a season-low 40 points allowed, which also came against UCSB on Nov. 28.
