Though 6-1 on the season, the Wyoming Cowboys have yet to beat a team of any major consequence. They have a chance to rectify that tonight on the road against the Colorado Buffaloes, and with the teams tied at 30 at halftime, they'll have a good shot at defeating a major conference opponent. Colorado, for their part, are looking to win their second game in a row after losing a one-point heartbreaker to the Colorado State Rams last week.
In Friday night's game, the Buffs have been led in the first half by the duo of Spencer Dinwiddie and Carlon Brown, who combined have 15 of Colorado's 40 halftime points. The Buffs had a rough go of it on offense in the first half, shooting only 44% from the field including 1-7 on threes, but they've made up for it on the line, where they went 7-9 compared to Wyoming's 1-2.
For the Cowboys, it's been Luke Martinez and Leonard Washington leading the way— the duo has 17 of Wyoming's 32 points. Martinez, in particular, will need to be contained in order for Colorado to come back, as his three three pointers in the first half tripled Colorado's total as a team.
