Some fresh links before the weekend!
UNM’s road woes continued Wednesday night against Utah State. The takeaway from this game, was turnovers. The Lobos struggled to keep the ball in their hands. 7 players had turnovers, and 5 of them had multiple turnovers. It’s tough to win a game when you can’t hold on to the ball. This lost marked the 7th straight road loss for UNM. They will look to break this streak when they visit San Jose State this upcoming Tuesday.
The defending Mountain West Champions got off to a hot start this season. The club was able to knock off #24 Missouri State is a blowout victory, 16-4. This offensive explosion was a statement win for the Wolf Pack, as they look to repeat as MWC champs. The 16 runs scored were the most Nevada put up in an open since 1974. Nevada went 3-1 in their first 4 game set, and that we good enough to tie San Diego State and San Jose State for the best record in the Mountain West.
The Cowboys have had a long season so far. With Tuesday’s loss to UNLV, Wyoming falls to 6-20 overall, and 2-11 in the Mountain West. The Achilles Heel for UW rared it’s ugly head once again in this game, turnovers. The Cowboys turned the ball over 19 times in the game and basically beat themselves. They gave themselves a chance to win late, but then gave the game away.
Rebuilds take time, and they often seem unbearable. But the team is showing some competitive spirit, and that’s all their coach could ask for. When your team is in a transition, it is the little things that give you hope. The Broncos have been one of the better teams this season when it comes to preventing offensive rebounds. They are nearly .500 with a 11-15 record overall, and 6-7 in MWC play. They are getting there, slowly, but surely.
