Huskies men fall flat in Wyoming

The Washington men's hoopsters dropped their second consecutive game in ugly fashion, falling 92-76 to the University of Wyoming Saturday afternoon.

Blame the high altitude, the team's first road game or Wyoming's tough home court - the Dome of Doom. The Washington basketball team will only blame themselves.

Washington (3-2) scored only 19 points in the first half, missing its first 11 shots of the game and falling behind by a mind-boggling 30 points by halftime.

Wyoming (3-2) worked its lead up to 38 points at 61-23 before the Huskies went a furious run to draw back in the game.

Curtis Allen, who led the Huskies with 18 points, nailed one of his six three pointers with five minutes left to cap the Washington rally, drawing the road team to within 80-69.

The Cowboys scored the next six points to put the game away for good.

Bobby Jones scored 14 and Will Conroy added 12 to round out the double-digit scorers for the UW.

Junior guard Jay Straight led Wyoming with 18 points, one of four Cowboys to finish in double-figures. Top Stories
