Wyoming falls to Nevada, 89-74

Wyoming’s undefeated season in Laramie is over

NCAA Basketball: Wyoming at UNLV Joshua Dahl-USA TODAY Sports

The shooting woes continued for the Cowboys in an uninspired night in the AA.

I don’t care if you’re the ‘96 Bulls, you’re not beating anyone when you’re shooting 32.8% from the floor.

The Cowboys jumped out to an early 6-0 lead off two triples by Alexander Aka Gorski. Nevada went on a 12-0 run to retake the lead and never looked back. The Cowboys would tie, but never lead for the rest of the game.

The Wolfpack’s Marcus Marshall tied his season best in points, scoring 32. All of Nevada’s starters finished the game with double digits.

Wyoming, on the other hand, couldn’t find their stroke. They shot 20-61 from the field and 7-33 from three. As a team that likes to shoot and likes to shoot deep, that’s unacceptable.

Aka Gorski led the Cowboys with 20 points. Only three other players (Hayden Dalton, Alan Herndon, and Justin James) had more than 10.

Nevada dominated the Cowboys off the glass, pulling in 49 rebounds to Wyoming’s 36.

Nevada also led the Cowboys in every single stat except for steals and turnovers.

Nevada boosted its resume in the Mountain West as they moved to 4-1 in the conference, the only loss being by one to Fresno.

Wyoming hasn’t seemed to be able to recapture their non-conference magic. They move to 2-3 in the Mountain West.
