“What we always talk about with this young team is continuing to try and get better,” said head coach Joe Legerski. “I thought there was a pivotal moment four minutes into the game when we’re down 9-0. They were nervous and you have to continue to play the game. You have to make a decision are you going to fight for the next 36 minutes or put your time in. I thought we really competed. Alison Gorrell was a huge lift for us. She came in and played with some toughness and energy. Towards the end of the first half we got on a bit of a roll, made some shots and the team was excited. The game became fun again, which we have to emphasize to this group. ”
Wyoming continues its homestand as the Cowgirls welcome the Montana Lady Griz, on Saturday, Dec. 3. The game is set for 5:00 p.m. in the Arena Auditorium.
