Game of the Week:  Border War 2.0

22 Wyoming Cowboys 22-4, 11-2 Conf @ Colorado State Rams 21-4, 11-4 Conf


[7:00] PM MT

Two of the best teams in the Mountain West and bitter rivals face off this week for the second time this season. Wyoming and Colorado State put on a show last time out in Laramie where it took overtime to decide a winner. Wyoming Head Coach Jeff Linder, Hunter Maldonado and Graham Ike led the Cowboys to a narrow victory 84-78 in late January.

The two teams have been mostly successful since that epic battle; The Rams going 6-1 while the Cowboys went 5-1. However, both programs had a significant stumble in their quest for a Mountain West regular season title, with CSU losing to UNLV for the second time this season while Wyoming dropped an ugly game to New Mexico.

With just a few games remaining, Niko Medved’s crew must finish the season strong to insure their first March Madness bid since 2013. Moby arena has given the Rams a special home court advantage all season long and the fans will need to deliver yet again as this one promises to be one for the record books.
