Our next opponent - Wyoming Cowboys

Recaps from their recent home-win over Air Force

Point totals



What Rebels need to think about when playing Wyoming Saturday at the Mack:

- Amath M'baye had a career high 27 points on 11-15 shooting. His average this season is 11.2 PPG, play excellent defense on him but only inside the arc, he's a 15% 3-point shooter. He's also 6'9" so likely keep Lopez, Massamba, or Thomas on him most of the game.

- Although the Cowboys lost when we played them in Laramie on January 25, Desmar Jackson dropped 17 on us. Good defensive assignment for Stanback / Willis.

- Don't play down to their level. Too often this season we've played to the level of the competition, be it up (SDSU) or down (Air Force). It's our house, and this is our last game here until the conference tournament. We need to win with authority to gain and keep our confidence heading into a likely 1st round match-up with New Mexico, and then subsequent meetings with likely foes BYU and SDSU.

Obvious win for UNLV
