Spurred by a surprise career day from reserve sophomore guard Kenny Foster, Wyoming clipped Incarnate Word in an overtime clash on Wednesday, 94-83.

Foster, who entered the contest averaging a mere 4.8 points per game, poured in a career-high 21 points on 6-8 shooting off the bench, including a perfect 3-3 day from behind the arc and a 6-7 display from the charity stripe.

Fellow guard Marcus Williams added 20 points and 6 assists in the victory, while junior Hunter Maldonado stuffed the stat-sheet, finishing with 14 points, 8 assists and 7 rebounds.

Wyoming trailed 33-27 at the break, but utilized a 51-point second half effort to force the Cardinals into an overtime period. The Cowboys would eventually outscore Incarnate Word 16-5 in the final period to secure the win.

The Cardinals were led by guard Keaston Willis in the defeat, who ended the night with 25 points (10-15 FG) and 8 rebounds, as well as Josh Morgan, who walked away with 18 points.

Wyoming, now 2-1, will return to action on Sunday, December 6th when they travel to battle Oregon State at 1:00 PM PT.
