Salt Lake City, UT – Another loss on the road added to the Wyoming Cowboy (9-17 2-10 MWC) woes Wednesday night as they fell to the Utah Utes (11-15 4-8 MWC) 80-70. The loss dropped Wyoming interim head coach Fred Langley’s record to 1-2.
Desmar Jackson led the way for the Cowboys with 17 points and five rebounds. Amath M’Baye chipped in with 14 while Joe Hudson added 10 for Wyoming. Wyoming only had eight players dressed for the game and all eight played at least 13 minutes each.
The Pokes shot over 42% from the field against the Utes and over 30% from the 3-point line which are better numbers for them than in many recent games. The downfall was the Cowboys let the Utes shoot over 50% from the field and over 45% from downtown. It is hard to win many if any games when a team shows no defense.
Wyoming will be back in action February 23rd as they host the Air Force Falcons at the AA in Laramie, game time is set to tip at 8:00 p.m. mountain time.
