Here's a look at some of the action in the Cowboys' match-up against Arkansas-Pine Bluff on Monday night. A welcome home crowd seemed to be just what the Pokes needed after three long and hard, consecutive road matches. Check out our photos…

Brandon Ewing was the star of the show against the Golden Lions. He had a game-leading 21 points, and even more impressive was the fact that he netted those totals on only nine shots. He was 7-9 from the field, including 4-6 beyond the arc, and his efficiency afforded a host of opportunities to pass the ball. He got his teammates going early and finished with a game-high eight assists. Here, he makes a move on the basket and chalks up a score.

He dishes off the ball to an open teammate.

Ryan Dermody had perhaps his best game of the season, chipping in a career-high 15 points, including four three-pointers, and adding 10 rebounds. Here he goes to the glass and gets the lay-in.

He knocks down one of his four threes here.

Joseph Taylor didn't have his best night shooting the ball, finishing just 2-of-5 from the floor, but his 10 rebounds helped keep the Golden Lions at bay. He wrestles one down right here.

Travis Nelson put in seven points and led the team in blocked shots with three. He shuts down a Golden Lion field goal with this hammering block here.

The Cowboys played incredible defense, holding the Golden Lions to 30 percent from the field and 15 percent from beyond the arc. Arkansas-Pine Bluff had a tough time finding any open looks, and the Cowboys seemed to follow the ball everywhere—as they did in this shot.

But with so many missed field goals, the Pokes had trouble pulling down all the defensive boards. The Golden Lions earned a slew of second chances with their 19 offensive rebounds. Jarvis Gunter was the rebound leader on Monday, grabbing 10.

The leading scorer for UAPB on the evening was William Byrd, who put up 14 points. He slices through the Wyoming defense here for an easy lay-in.

It seems that the Cowboys are charmed in front of their home crowd. They easily disposed the Golden Lions in Monday's contest and have yet to lose a game in the Arena Auditorium—that includes exhibition match-ups. Let's hope the success continues as the season wears on.
