My three keys for Wyoming men’s basketball today against San Jose State, which starts at 4 p.m. MT at the Arena-Auditorium in Laramie.
1. Get a win: Plain and simple, isn’t it? Yes, the team has struggled big-time without senior forward Larry Nance Jr. (mononucleosis). But it isn’t like this team has not dealt
with such adversity. It did last season when Nance tore the ACL in his right knee, and two years ago when senior guard Luke Martinez was suspended prior to the start of conference play. One player doesn’t need to make up for Nance’s absence (he is listed as day-to-day but likely won’t play today), but everyone has to do their part. UW didn’t win 19 games prior to this by not playing well as a team. Coach Larry Shyatt always talks about being “connected” as a team. The Cowboys haven’t the last two games, but needs to more than ever now. If they do that, they can and will win today.
Here is my video preview of today’s game:
