Mountain West Wire Player Of The Week: Wyoming’s Justin James
The Cowboys went 2-0 this week behind James’ great week.
Wyoming is amazing at home.
The Wyoming Cowboys are great at home Mountain West play, and they have wins over Boise State and Nevada. The road-home split is real as the Cowboys needed overtime to beat San Jose State on the road.
Justin James was a huge reason that the Cowboys were 2-0 and the home 104-103 double overtime win over No. 23. In this win, the guard had a game high 33 points, 10 rebounds and a steal. James also shot very well by converting 14 of 22 from the field and 2 of 6 from beyond the arc
In the follow up game at San Jose State saw James put up another 33 points and was just two rebounds short of another double-double with eight boards, and had a steal and a block in the second overtime win of the week.
