The Wyoming Cowgirls season ended Monday night with a 65-54 loss to Minnesota in the Great 8 round of the WNIT.

The Gophers out rebounded the Cowgirls by eight which led to eight, second-chance, points for Minnesota. Wyoming also committed 12 turnovers which led to a dozen points for the Gophers.

Wyoming took the lead early in the fourth, 44-43, but Minnesota pulled away, stretching the lead by nine with a minute on the clock. The Gophers used the free-throw line at the end to seal the win, out scoring Wyoming 25-to-14 in the fourth quarter.

Wyoming Head Coach Heather Ezell said the Gophers took away Wyoming’s advantage at elevation by slowing down the game and preventing the Cowgirls from running.

Minnesota will play Troy on Wednesday night. On the other side of the bracket, St. Louis will face off against Vermont.

The Cowgirls end their season 18-15 overall.
