The Wyoming Cowboys had no answer for the inside presence of Colorado State tonight (Wednesday), as the Rams took care of the Pokes 78-56 in the Arena-Auditorium. CSU out-rebounded Wyoming 35-11, including 13-2 on the offensive glass. The Cowboys were also outscored 20-2 on second chance points by the Rams. “They were more physical tonight,” said Wyoming sophomore forward Larry Nance Junior. “They physically dominated us, and that’s what senior-ladened teams can do.”
CSU senior big man Colton Iverson led the Rams with a career high 29 points on 12-12 shooting, and also added eight rebounds. Wyoming head coach Larry Shyatt said, “If you don’t front him and keep him from getting touches, or you don’t get some fouls, it’s going to continue.
On senior night, Wyoming forward Leonard Washington was ineffective. Battling back issues, Washington was a game time decision, but played 21 minutes before fouling out. He finished with just three points and one rebound. Fellow senior Derrious Gilmore had 12 points, while Nance finished with a team high 15.
Wyoming finishes the regular season at 18-12, and 4-12 in the Mountain West. They now await their opponent in the Mountain West tournament next week in Las Vegas.
