Pokes get a win, and lose a close one

On Thursday, Nov. 10 the Cowboys basketball team beat the Nicholls State Colonels 79-68, but lost to the Southeastern Louisiana Lions 76-72.

In the game against Nicholls State, it was the first game against an NCAA division 1 team, and the Cowboys took care of business.

Brendan Wenzel played his first game of the season, and it was a big one. Dropping 20 points, he is the Pokes highest scorer of the season so far.

A couple of Nicholls players had great games, but the depth of the Pokes outlasted them. Many players contributed to Wyoming’s win, as seven different players put up eight points or more.
