Cowboys Have Lost Three Of Their Last Five Games
Wyoming fell to SEC’s South Carolina on Wednesday night
The Pokes led for just 19 seconds
Four Gamecocks finished in double figures as South Carolina handled Wyoming 80-64 Wednesday night in Columbia.
Chris Silva had 19 points and 10 rebounds, Felipe Haase added 17 points and Frank Booker and Justin Minaya combined for 27 tallies in South Carolina’s seventh victory of the season.
Wyoming guard Justin James led all scorers with 20 points, 11 via the free throw line. James connected on just four of his 12 field goal attempts, as the Cowboys converted just 33.9% of its shots in the double-digit loss. Lou Adams (12 points), Hayden Dalton (12 points), and Alex Aka Gorski (10 points) also finished in double figures.
Nearly a third of Wyoming’s total points came from the free throw line – 20 of 64. Wyoming turned the ball over 18 times, the seventh time this season that the Cowboys have yielded 13 or more turnovers.
Wyoming now falls to 6-3 on the year, and is no longer in the KenPom top 100. The Cowboys finish conference play with four winnable games, all at home, against sub-200 KenPom opponents (Pacific, Eastern Washington, Texas Southern, Northern Colorado).
