Wyoming Cowboy’s Men’s Basketball beat Nevada 85-81 in the first round of the Mountain West Championships in Las Vegas last night.

Although the Pokes were down by four in the first half, they made a strong showing in the second, at one point holding a double-digit lead. Sophomore forward Larry Nance led the Cowboys with 19 points. 

Wyoming now advances to the quarterfinals where they’ll face number-one seed, New Mexico, at 7:30 tonight.
