Playing hard is something the Wyoming Cowboys have done since Fred Langley took over as head coach five game ago. That did not change Saturday night in Las Vegas as the Cowboys played hard but fell to the UNLV Runnin’ Rebels 90-77. The loss dropped Wyoming to 10-18 on the season and 3-11 in the MWC while UNLV improved to 22-7 on the season and 10-5 in the MWC.

Amath M’Baye who was coming off a career high 27 Wednesday night against Air Force followed that up Saturday with a 24 point 7 rebound performance against the Rebels.

The Pokes only led once against UNLV that was at the 16:09 mark in the first half when Wyoming went up 9-7 on a Desmar Jackson Layup.  UNLV would take control from that point on taking a 54-39 lead into the half.

In the second half the Cowboys would cut the lead to nine on a couple of different occasions but could never get any closer than that.

Desmar Jackson added 19 points for the Cowboys while Djibril Thiam added 10.

UNLV had five players in double figures led by Chace Stanback who had 19. Three other players added 15 each while a fifth player chipped in 10.

The Cowboys will come back to Laramie for their final home game of the season as they will welcome the San Diego Aztecs to the AA Tuesday night March 1st at 8:00 p.m.
