Cowboys Basketball Welcomes South Carolina to AA in December

The Wyoming men's basketball team will play eight of 12 non-conference games at home, including a Dec. 5 game against South Carolina, coach Allen Edwards announced Monday. Two of the other non-conference games are a part of the Sun Bowl Invitational, which will be played in El Paso, Tex., Dec. 21-22.

The Cowboys will play home-and-home with eight of the 10 other Mountain West Conference teams that play basketball, and play single games with San Diego State, on the road, and Nevada, at home.

In addition to South Carolina, the non-conference home schedule includes regional matchups with Denver and Northern Colorado, along with visits to Larmaie by Cal-Santa Barbara, Grambling, Niagara and Dixie State. The Cowboys will play Colorado Christian in an exhibition game on Nov. 1.

The Cowboys will go to Oregon State for the second year in a row, and play at Evansville in the MWC/Missouir Valley Challenge. In addition to the Cowboys, the Sun Bowl Classic will featured host Texas El Paso, East Tennessee State and Norfolk State.

The Cowboys also are expected to play in a tournament Thanksgiving week that is tied into their home games against Grambling and Niagara. The site and location for the December games will be determined.

The Cowboys and rival Colorado State will play on Saturday both in Laramie on Feb. 9, and at Fort Collins on Feb. 23.
