Turnovers trouble Shyatt

There wasn’t much to be critical about in Wyoming’s 73-49 win Monday night against Idaho State, but coach Larry Shyatt pointed one out in his post-game interview session with the media.

Turnovers.

UW committed 17, which is the second-most this season.

“I told them I was going to look at how many (Idaho State) forced us into and how many we created ourselves,” Shyatt said. “I don’t want to degrate an opponent, they have a right to play well and force turnovers, but when we cough up the ball and expose oursleves, that’s something we need to get better at and will get better at.”

Shyatt estimated nine or 10 of UW’s turnovers were the result of UW not taking care of the ball.

The Cowboys average 12 turnovers per game and force nearly 16. They forced 16 against Idaho State.
