Shyatt Says New Mexico A Complete Team
Wyoming Cowboy basketball Coach Larry Shyatt says the pokes next opponent, 14th ranked and Mountain West Conference leader New Mexico, has "everything you'd want" in a team.
Shyatt says that includes a terrific coaching staff, talented players with great depth and balance, and a winning tradition. The Lobos (24-4, 11-2 in conference), are coming off a 70-60 victory over San Diego State Wednesday night, while Wyoming (18-10, 4-10 in conference) is coming off a 72-66 loss against Air Force on Tuesday.
Wyoming gave New Mexico all it could handle in a 63-59 Lobo win in Laramie on January 30th, but New Mexico has a long-standing reputation of being especially tough at home, where they are 14-1 this season. Tip-off is scheduled for 3pm Saturday in Albuquerque. The game is reportedly already sold out.
The game will be the Cowboys last road game of the regular season. They close out the regular season in Laramie March 6th against arch-rival Colorado State.
