Cowgirls Drop Road Game Against Bulldogs
A tough shooting night led to a second straight loss on Saturday for the Wyoming Cowgirls. They fell at Fresno State, 60-47.
Wyoming shot only 31 percent for the game and went 6-26, 23 percent, from deep. They lost despite out-rebounding the Bulldogs 46-30.
Head coach Joe Legerski said in a release from the University of Wyoming,
“We had 14 offensive rebounds, but only had nine second chance points. You give yourself a second opportunity but don’t convert. We have to start taking a look at where and when we are shooting the ball well, it takes care of itself. We played well again defensively, but couldn’t come up with enough points on our end.”
The game went back-and-forth in the first half, but a 13-5 surge by Fresno State gave them a 30-24 lead at halftime.
The second half began with the Bulldogs taking a 35-26 lead. Every Wyoming spurt was answered by Fresno State. Once the lead reached double figures, at 48-38, the Cowgirls didn’t get closer than seven the rest of the game.
Fresno State (13-10, 8-4) was led by Candice White with 19 points and seven rebounds. The Bulldogs shot 38 percent from the field. They were 10-10 at the foul line.
Wyoming (14-7, 7-3) fell to second in the Mountain West standings behind UNLV with the loss. Liv Roberts led the Cowgirls with 15 points and nine rebounds.
UW will play at Utah State Wednesday at 7 p.m.
