A Swedish shooting guard will join the Wyoming Cowboys basketball team next season. Alex Aka Gorski was given a scholarship by Wyoming. He's expected to provide an offensive boost to the team right away. Head Coach Larry Shyatt calls him the kind of deep shooter that UW needs in order to compete in the Mountain West Conference.
“He’s mature, he left home as a 9th grader and went to Stockholm to play at the highest level in his country," Shyatt says. "He’s been extremely well coached, he knows how to play off the dribble as well as within the game.”
Wyoming Cowboys basketball Coach Larry Shyatt says he is thrilled with the way his team has remained focused throughout its 13 game winning streak. Despite the fact that Wyoming is unbeaten, it has failed to crack the national rankings. Shyatt said the players have not let that distract them.
“And I think they have been really, really good at being at what I called it earlier laser focused on what’s important now. They seem to repeat the saying that we’ve had around here that happy is for March.”
