Star basketball coach seeks to reverse Cowboys' losing streak

Nov 1, 2011

If you said that the Wyoming Cowboys basketball team has struggled in recent years,that would be a bit of an understatement. After back to back 10 win and 21 loss seasons, a change was needed. So, Wyoming went to its past and hired Larry Shyatt. Shyatt coached one year at Wyoming and took a team that had struggled in previous years to a 19-9 record and the postseason. As most fans know, Shyatt then left to Coach at Clemson and later became the top assistant and two time National Champion Florida. Shyatt was always troubled that he left a job unfinished at Wyoming and decided to come back. Practice is underway and despite losing his top scorer from a year ago, Shyatt believes he can build a winner.
