Cowboys Fall To Rams 73-60

A loss to their rivals is not what the Wyoming Cowboys (7-8 0-1 MWC) were looking to do to open conference play Tuesday night; but what you are looking to do and what you do is two different things and they did just that as they lost to the Colorado State Rams (11-4 1-0 MWC) 73-60.

Wyoming opened the scoring 30 seconds into the game when JayDee Luster his one from beyond the arc putting the Cowboys up 3-0. The Rams quickly tied it up as the scoring went back and forth in the first half. The Cowboys did extend the lead to nine, 22-13 with just over 13 minutes to go in the first half. The Pokes extended their lead to12 but went into the locker room at the half only up two, 39-37.

With 24 points and 7 rebounds Desmar Jackson led The Pokes while Francisco Cruz chipped in 14 for Wyoming. As a team the Cowboys shot 41.7% from the field and 34.8% from downtown.

Coming out in the second half the game completely Colorado States way as they tied it up less than 30 seconds into the second half and took the lead less than a minute into the half when the Rams Wes Eikmeier hit a 3 putting Colorado State up 42-39. Wyoming would never lead again as the Rams held them to 21 second half points, sealing the victory.
