Get ready for more basketball at the 2014 Mountain West Championships in Las Vegas next March. All 11 men's and all 11 women's teams in the league will participate in six days of action at the Thomas and Mack Center.
The only player to have his number retired and hanging in the rafters at the Arena-Auditorium will be part of an ESPN special celebrating the 75th year of the NCAA Tournament. Former Wyoming Cowboy great and College Basketball Hall of Famer Kenny Sailors is part of the network's look back at some the great moments in the tournament's history.
It was another nail-biter for the Wyoming Cowboys, but this time the heroics came from the opponent. The Western Michigan Broncos left Laramie with a 75-67 overtime victory over UW in the CBI Quarterfinals Monday night at the Arena-Auditorium. Western Michigan's David Brown buried a right corner 3-pointer with 0.8 seconds left that tied the game at 59 and forced overtime. Then the Broncos out-scored the Pokes 16-8 in the extra session to advance on to the CBI semifinals.
Nathan Sobey buried a 3-pointer from the deep left corner off a pass from Josh Adams at the buzzer, and the Wyoming Cowboys topped the Lehigh Mountain Hawks 67-66 in the first round of the CBI Tuesday night at the Arena-Auditorium. The Pokes rallied from a 7-point deficit with five minutes left and closed the game on a 10-2 run for the stunning victory.
The University of Wyoming men's basketball team has earned a second-straight postseason berth for just the 11th time in program history, as the Cowboys accepted an invitation on Sunday to play in the College Basketball Invitational (CBI) presented by Buick. UW will face Lehigh on Tuesday at 7 p.m. MT in Wyoming's Arena-Auditorium.
A lack of offensive firepower hampered the Wyoming Cowboys, as they lost to the #14 New Mexico Lobos 59-46 in the quarterfinals of the Mountain West Basketball Championships in Las Vegas Wednesday night. UW shot only 32 percent from the field and could never mount a serious challenge to the Lobos, who ended the game on a 12-4 run to advance to the MW tournament semifinals Friday night.
Larry Nance, Jr. scored 19 points and grabbed 8 rebounds to lead the Wyoming Cowboys to a 85-81 victory over the Nevada Wolfpack in the opening game of the 2013 Reese's Mountain West Basketball Championships in Las Vegas Tuesday night. Nance was one of four UW players in double figures, as the Pokes survived a late push by Nevada and advance to face top seed New Mexico in quarterfinals Wednesday night.
