Cowboys Win On Buzzer Beater
Three….Two….One….Shot on the way….Oh My God the Cowboys win!!!
That’s how it went tonight for the University of Wyoming Cowboys Men’s Basketball team. Buzzer Beater. The Cowboys got a post season invite to the CBI Tournament. ]
And Senior Derrious Gilmore came ready to play while the rest of the Pokes did not. Until the second half. Gilmore poured in 17 first half points against the Patriot League Lehigh. Who was a little astounded that the Pokes put their high school line up on the floor when Larry Nance Jr. and senior Leonard Washington went to the bench with foul trouble. Who is Jack Bentz? Really? He’s a walk on. And he played tonight. Played well. The whole thing was a mess. Larry Shyatt was grasping at straws.
Then as time is running out Junior guard Nathan Sobey nailed a three as time expired to give the University of Wyoming men’s basketball team a dramatic 67-66 win over Lehigh in the first round of the 2013 CBI presented by Buick on Tuesday night in the Arena-Auditorium. The Cowboys (20-13) trailed the Mountain Hawks (21-10) by seven with five minutes left, but closed the game on a 10-2 run to claim its 23rd-straight non-conference victory in the AA. The Pokes advance to the CBI quarterfinals where they will host the winner of North Dakota State-Western Michigan on Monday in Laramie.”The Score
