It took over a month but Wyoming finally won a basketball game. The Cowboys now avoid finishing last in the Mountain West after avoiding the sweep by the Air Force Falcons. With the 58-49 victory the Cowboys finally reach the 10 win mark with one regular season game remaining.
Some unusual suspects stepped up tonight to give the Cowboys the win in front of the home crowd. Ryan Dermody hit four treys for 12 points and the lone senior on the squad stepped up big on Senior night. Daylan Harrison had his best conference game by hitting three treys and had 12 total points. Desmar Jackson had a rough night shooting put still put up 12 points and dished out five assists.
Tom Fow had 17 points to lead the Falcons while Grant Parker had 14. The Falcons jumped out the gates quickly and led most of the first half. As the second half rolled on the Cowboys crept before finally taking the lead with 10 minutes left in the game.
The Cowboys will finish up the regular season on Saturday when they travel to Las Vegas to take on UNLV. The Pokes will meet Air Force again on Wednesday in the pigtail of the Mountain West Tournament which is also played in Las Vegas.
Cowboy Joe: Dermody stepped big in the second half with 12 points and got a win on Senior night.
Cowboy Low: Adam Waddell had two points and two rebounds. The big fella just isn't healthy right now and can't go full speed on his ankle. Hopefully he can get some rest on the weekend and get ready for the tournament.
Cowboy Foe: Tom Fow led all scorers with 17.
