Wyoming junior guard was 4 of 6 from 3-point range in the Cowboys’ season-opening win over Northern Colorado last weekend. Adams showed good range, and said he worked a lot in the offseason on his shot.
But in the Cowboys’ next game, a 61-46 win over Division II Western State on Tuesday, Adams was 1 of 4 from the field and 0 of 2 from 3-point range.
In UW’s game today against Colorado, which tips off at 4 p.m. at the Arena-Auditorium, Adams said he wants to get to the basket more.
“I haven’t done that much in the first two games because (opponents) gave me open shots outside, but I know that’s something I need to get back to doing in a game like this,” Adams said.
It also should be interesting to see how Adams and senior guard Riley Grabau play today. Both are from Colorado — Adams from the Denver area and Grabau from Boulder where CU is located. Both downplayed the fact they are playing a school from their home state who didn’t show a ton of interest in them in the recruiting process. In fact, both have done that since they’ve been at UW and in previous games with CU, in which UW has won two of the last three.
Grabau also struggled against Western State as he was 0 of 3 from the field — all from 3-point range and had two turnovers compared to no assists.
Safe to say that both Adams and Grabau must play a lot better today if UW has a chance to win.
