The Cowboy basketball team continues to take a beating, and it hasn’t played a game since Christmas Day. Now a fourth game has been cancelled. “COVID-19 related concerns” are again to blame. Tomorrow night’s matchup between Wyoming and SDSU was postponed. The word came yesterday just before noon.
After a hot start to the season, going 11-2 through their non-conference schedule, the Cowboys have not played a single Mountain West opponent. Head coach Jeff Linder is frustrated.
Some good news, though. Wyoming announced a schedule change last night. The revamped lineup will try to make up for lost time and lost games. The Cowboys will play a make-good contest at Nevada on Monday, January 17. Tip-off time is to be announced later.
Additionally, the San Jose State at Wyoming men’s basketball game originally scheduled for Tuesday, January 18th has been moved to Wednesday, January 19th. The Cowboys are scheduled to get back into action on Saturday against Utah State.
The Utah State game is on the road at Logan, Utah. Tip is set for 7 p.m. The Cowboys will stay on the road for Monday’s game against Nevada in Reno. Coach Linder talked about the grind the Cowboys will face as they hope to get back into action.
By game time Saturday night, it will be three weeks since the Cowboys last played.
Wyoming is not alone. Fresno State, UNLV, Air Force will all be on fast break schedule of make-good games. So will women’s teams in the league.
The Wyoming Cowgirls will try to make up the January 3rd postponed game with Boise State on Tuesday, January 25th in Laramie.
