Wyoming men’s basketball coach Larry Shyatt is as serious as the next guy when he’s coaching his players, whether it’s in practice or in a game.
But he also has a great sense of humor, and that was on display during his teleconference with the media Thursday.
Over the last few weeks, Shyatt has talked about adding more to UW’s offense over the holiday break leading up to conference play. He said last week some new wrinkles have been added, but probably more on defense.
He then said this: “We may add a touch here and there offensively, but we’re so gifted offensively that I didn’t think we had to touch much.”
He was kidding, of course, as UW shoots about 47 percent per game, including 33 percent from 3-point range and averages 66.8 points per game.
When you’re 13-2, it’s probably easier to have a sense of humor about that.
