Cowboys Defeat Horned Frogs 77-67

Laramie, WY – Amath M’Baye helped the Wyoming Cowboys snap an eight game losing streak by scoring a career high 21 points Saturday against the TCU Horned Frogs and leading the Cowboys to a 77-67 victory. The win the first for The Pokes since January 8th was the first win for interim head coach Fred Langley.

In addition to M’Baye’s 21 points the Cowboys had two other players in double figures. Desmar Jackson scored 15 points while Francisco Cruz added 12 of his own. 

"I was really proud of the guys’ effort today." said Wyoming interim head coach Fred Langley. "They really executed our game plan."

The Cowboys played one of their most complete games of the season with all players playing over 20 minutes each. JayDee Luster only played one minute due to a hip flexor.

Early in the first half the game went back and forth before the Cowboys opened up and 11 point lead with 8:39 seconds to go in the first half. The Horned Frogs fought back going into the half only down six 32-26.

As the second half started TCU cut the lead to three 34-31 with 17:33 to play. That was as close as they would get the rest of the game as the Cowboys extended their lead on the way to the 10 point win.

Leading the way for the Horned Frogs was J.R. Cadot who scored 16, while Garlon Green and Greg Hill chipped in 12 apiece.

The Cowboys will be back in action Wednesday night at 7:00 p.m. Mountain Time. They will travel to Provo, UT to take on the Utah Utes.
