Friday, December 18
It was a 3 point night for the Cowboys in an easy 66-48 win at Mariemont.  4 each for Lonnie Grayson (26 points) and Garyn Prater (17 points), 3 for Joey Edmonds (16 points) as the team hit on 11 of 19 attempts.  Those three players scored 59 of the 66.  Varsity record now 6-1.

One of the most dramatic finishes in the history of Wyoming basketball as Lonnie's long corner 3 pointer at the buzzer enabled the Cowboys to eke out a 37-36 victory at home.   The team was down 10 points with 5:24 to play.  Another key shot was Garyn's 3 pointer at the halftime buzzer from 12 feet beyond the arch, putting us behind by only 1, 27-26.  A hard fought defensive game by two exceedingly  quick  teams.

A tough 49-50 loss to Mariemont in which free throws and turnovers decided the game.

Down a point, with 44 and 34 seconds left, we missed 4 consecutive free throws.  Two seconds later, Nate Harper makes 2.  Wyoming up by one.  Wyoming gets an out of bounds play under Mariemont's basket, but throw it into the hands of the opponent who scores with 6.8 seconds on the clock for the win.

The Cowboys turned the ball over 23 times, 5 on out of bounds play, and made only 11 of 26 free throws.  And that's the game.

Despite being outscored in the final quarter 16-7, Wyoming's Junior Varsity held on for a nice 46-42 victory over Northwest.  The Cowboys won in rebounding, 33-23 and that helped with the win.  Nate Tyree's 16 points and Moe Mitchell's 15 led the way.

Thanks to Bill Ries for the reports.
