Great night for Wyoming: Men's Basketball, Wrestling, Women's Swimming and Diving all win

*Aka Gorski and Cowboys Down Bears, 101-62* (Laramie, Wyo.) — Sophomore guard Alexander Aka Gorski paced five Cowboys in double figures with 18 points to lead the University of Wyoming men’s basketball team to a season-opening 101-62 victory over Bristol on Friday night in the Arena-Auditorium. The Pokes came out of the chutes with a 21-9 run and never looked back en route to their 13th-straight nonconference win in the building, which ties for the ninth-longest streak in school history. “We know we are a different team this year,” UW head coach Larry Shyatt said. “We know what we lost and we know who the new guys are. We don’t have that interior look that went to the Lakers. What we do have are guys that are very unselfish and that are capable three-point shooters.” The Cowboys open the road portion of their 2015-16 season at Indiana State on Monday at 5 p.m. MT. *Harms Leads Cowboys Past Air Force in Big 12 Debut* (Colorado Springs, Colo.) — Senior heavyweight Tanner Harms pin 57 seconds into the first period of the night’s final match lifted Wyoming past Air Force 22-16 on Friday evening in Clune Arena in Colorado Springs, Colo. It was the Pokes’ first win as members of the Big 12 Conference in their first dual of the season. The match also marked head coach Mark Branch’s 75th win as a head coach. The victory was the eighth-straight win for the Pokes over the Falcons. “It was pretty tough, but that is what I expected and bonus points were important tonight,” Branch said. Wyoming returns to the mat next weekend traveling to Nebraska on Saturday with action slated to start at 6 p.m. MT. *Cowgirls Roll to Double-Dual Win over Falcons, Lumberjacks* (Laramie, Wyo.) — The Wyoming Cowgirl’s swimming and diving team came away with wins over Air Force and Northern Arizona in double-dual competition on Friday night at the Laramie Recreation Center. The Cowgirls withheld Air Force by a score of 176-118, while also defeating NAU 181-113. The wins moved UW to 6-1 on the young season. The Cowgirls will compete Nov. 20-22 at the Purdue Invite in West Lafayette, Ind. *Feature Photo: Wyoming Athletics / Pitchengine Communities#dally #gameticker* #dally #gameticker
