LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — Wyoming remains alive in the College Basketball Invitational tournament and will host another game.
The Cowboys held Missouri-Kansas City to 34 percent from the field and 16 points below their season scoring average in a 72-61 quarterfinal win Monday night in Laramie. Guard Justin James led Wyoming with 21 points.
Wyoming will now host Utah Valley at 7 p.m. Wednesday in the semifinals.
Wyoming now has 20 wins this season for the 22nd 20-win season in school history.
Head coach Allen Edwards also became only the second Cowboys head coach to record 20 wins in their first season. Benny Dees had 26 wins in his first season in 1987-88.
