Boise State goes on the road to Laramie to take on Justin James and the Wyoming Cowboys.
Both teams endured their fair share of struggles in non-conference play but are looking to turn the corner as the calendar flips to league competition.
Boise State is still looking to find its footing, having yet to win consecutive games against D-I teams this season. BSU’s five-win non-conference output is the lowest of the Leon Rice era. The team’s highlights through the first two months were its 20-point win over St. Bonaventure and an 83-71 victory over Pacific at home.
Wyoming has battled the injury bug, in addition to recovering from losing the main core from last year’s 20-win squad. Justin James leads the way, filling the boxscore on a nightly basis. The NBA hopeful is averaging 22.4 points, 9.3 rebounds, 4.4 assists, and 1.5 steals per game.
These two hungry teams are desperate to start Mountain West competition off with a much-needed win.
