In a hard fought game without team leader Josh Adams, the Wyoming Cowboys lost to the Boise State Broncos 71-81.

The pokes are now 10-11 in overall play and 3-5 in conference play.

University of Wyoming head men’s basketball coach Larry Shyatt announced Friday that senior guard Josh Adams would not start Saturday’s game against Boise State.

Shyatt and his staff made his decision after Adams had a technical foul against Nevada in the previous game.
