Can the Wyoming Cowgirls Breakthrough?
Still searching for that elusive first conference road win of the season, the Wyoming Cowgirls are back in action Wednesday, February 12 at San Diego State. The game is set for a 7 p.m. start, Mountain time.
Wyoming (15-6, 6-4) is a perfect 6-0 at home this season, but 0-4 in the Mountain West Conference on the road. Three of their four losses away from Laramie have been by six points or less. They enter off their first back-to-back victories in conference play after defeating New Mexico and UNLV at home last week.
The opposition is the San Diego State Aztecs (8-12, 5-5), who sit only one game back of the Cowgirls in the MW standings. They have also struggled on the road, but are 4-1 at home in league action.
This game pits the number one offensive rebounding team in the conference, in SDSU, at 41 percent per game against a Wyoming squad that is tops in the MW in defensive rebound percentage at 70.4.
Another key will be how the Cowgirls shoot against the San Diego State zone defense. UW knocks down 33.8 percent from beyond the arc, while the Aztecs have the worst 3-point field goal defense in the MW at 38.2 percent.
Wyoming is 8-13 all-time at SDSU. Their last victory there came in 2011.
The game is set for a 7 p.m. tip-off in San Diego, California.
