What to Know
The Wyoming Cowboys' road trip will continue as they head out to face the Portland Pilots at 9:00 p.m. ET on December 1st at Earle A. Chiles Center. Both teams took a loss in their last game, so they'll have plenty of motivation to get the 'W'.
It's hard to win when your shooting is a whole 16.8% worse than the opposition, a fact Wyoming found out the hard way on Sunday. Their bruising 86-63 defeat to the Longhorns might stick with them for a while.
Meanwhile, the Pilots lost 75-74 to the Vikings on a last-minute layup From Ismail Habib. Portland got off to an early lead (up 12 with 3:12 left in the first quarter), but sadly they weren't able to maintain that momentum.
