Cowboys Lose Heartbreaker In MWC Tournament

They had the lead. They lost the lead. They tied the game. They got behind by double digets. They fought back. All in one game at the Mountain West Conference Tournament. But it wasn’t enough for the University of Wyoming Cowboys men’s basketball team. “Sophomore guard Josh Adams posted 24 points and the fifth-seeded University of Wyoming men’s basketball team was within one point of No. 4 seed UNLV with 23 seconds left, but the Rebels made key free throws down the stretch to hold on for a 71-67 victory in the MW Championship quarterfinals on Thursday afternoon in the Thomas & Mack Center. The Cowboys (18-14, 9-9 MW) were eliminated from the MW tournament by the Rebels (20-12, 10-8 MW) for the second time in the last three seasons.” “[The Cowboys] are a great group,” UW head coach Larry Shyatt said. “They play till the end every night. And the best thing about them in my world is, they don’t try to be somebody they’re not. They just try to be who they are, play hard every night, home, away, win or lose.”

Now we wait to see if the NIT Tournament comes knocking on the Cowboys door.
