Why Wyoming Will Win

Wyoming has its first chance against a major power conference opponent Monday night when the Cowboys tip off against Pac-12’s Oregon State Beavers. OSU is led by forward Tres Tinkle, son of head coach Wayne Tinkle. He’s averaged 14.6 points and 5.9 rebounds per game in an Oregon State uniform, but faces a tough matchup in Hayden Dalton, who was on fire on Friday. Dalton recorded a career-high 30 points and, at times, was unconscious from deep. If Wyoming can get Justin James going (two points vs. Chattanooga), the Cowboys could present a defensive challenge for Oregon State.
