VIDEO: Wyoming wins MW Tournament with 45-43 win over San Diego State

Normally I do my three takes from a Wyoming win or loss in men’s basketball.

Hard to put the Cowboys’ 45-43 win over San Diego State to win the Mountain West Tournament Saturday into words. The fourth-seeded Cowboys (25-9) won its first-ever MW Tournament, and its first conference tournament since 1988 when it was a member of the Western Athletic Conference.

So, I will let you watch three videos from the game. The first is┬ásome of the late-game highlights — which includes a huge 3-pointer from junior guard Josh Adams and two free throws by senior forward Derek Cooke Jr.

Here is the team’s post-game trophy presentation and the start of cutting down the net.

Finally, here is coach Larry Shyatt, Adams, Cooke and senior forward Larry Nance Jr. in the postgame news conference.

Wyoming will find out who its plays in the NCAA Tournament around 4 p.m. Sunday.
