The Wyoming Cowboys will face a Mid-American Conference team in the second round of tonight’s College Basketball Invitational tournament.
Western Michigan had 21 wins and 12 losses this year and features two solid inside players in Junior Shayne Whittington and Freshman Darius Paul.
Wyoming Head Coach Larry Shyatt says they will have to be contained.
“Yes, they do get good scoring from both their interior players, one freshman of the year and then of course, one first team all league player. So Whittington and Paul will give us, as they have given others, some serious problems.”
Shyatt is hoping that Wyoming forward Leonard Washington can return to the lineup tonight after he re-injured his back.
Tipoff is tonight at seven.
