Cowboys Corrall Colorado State
I start this off with a past experience. As a young college student back in the Jim Brandenburgh days. I, and a group of fellow students, went down to Colorado State, during the hey days of Wyoming Cowboy Basketball with the likes of Chris Engler, Billy Garnett and others. The team was a monster. Wyoming handed Colorado State their lunch. We yelled at the end of the game loudly. We were met in the parking lot by a group of frat boys from Colorado State who proceeded to focus our attention on the fact we were going to get our butts kicked. That's what happened. Well We're Back. The University of Wyoming men's basketball team are back on the national stage. The Pokes took down Colorado State and it was a Wyoming native that hit the winning bucket. Senior forward Larry Nance Jr. finished with a team-high 15 points, but it was redshirt sophomore guard Jason McManamen'ts three with 20 seconds left that gave the University of Wyoming men's basketball team a 60-54 win at Colorado State on Wednesday night. The Pokes (14-2, 3-0 MW) never trailed against the Rams (14-2, 1-2 MW) en route to their first victory in Moby Arena since 2009 and moved to 3-0 in the Mountain West for the first time since 2002-03. This was a win that students, when they get really old, will talk about. "What a great game, a good college game," UW head coach Larry Shyatt said. "I don't think either team played as well as they would have liked or as well as they normally play. Both teams are low-turnover teams, but there were a lot of turnovers tonight. Both teams were diving on the floor for loose balls, but I guess that is what you want in an emotional game like this." Nance finished with 15 points, six rebounds and three assists, while senior guard Charles Hankerson Jr. and Adams had 13 apiece. Adams added six rebounds, five assists and three steals. Wyoming shot 45 percent (18-of-40) from the field to 34 percent (17-of-50) for Colorado State. Wyoming continues its season by hosting Boise State on Saturday at 4 p.m. MT in the Arena-Auditorium.
