(Video) Jason McManamen’s Clutch Shot Seals Big Border War Win for Wyoming
It's was an ugly, sloppy, hard fought game marred by turnovers, miscues, fouls, time outs and physical play. Wyoming led Colorado State all the way, then nearly squandered a double digit advantage in the second half.
Star forward Larry Nance Jr. was hobbled with a thigh bruise and saddled with 4 fouls. Then, with 30 seconds left in a one point game, reserve guard Jason McManamen, the pride of Torrington, Wyoming, came off the bench and hit the biggest shot of his life. His clutch three pointer helped seal a huge win for the 14-2 Cowboys, who moved to 3-0 in the Mountain West Conference.
Up in the cheap seats, a large contingent of Cowboys fans chanted "W-Y-O", while the dejected home crowd headed for the exits.
The two arch rivals will meet again next month, when the Rams travel to Laramie for a rematch at the AA. And don't be surprised if there's a third border war in the Mountain West Conference Tournament.
