The University of Wyoming women’s basketball team looks to get back on the winning track Thursday when it opens Mountain West play at San Diego State.
The Cowgirls (7-4) are coming off a 63-40 loss at nationally ranked Duke last week that snapped a three-game winning streak.
Senior Liv Roberts continues to lead Wyoming in scoring and rebounding as she averages 10.8 points and 6.1 rebounds per game, respectively. The 5-foot-11 Roberts, a returning all-conference performer, has led the Cowgirls in scoring six times this season.
Junior Bailee Cotton is second on the team in both scoring (9.1) and rebounding (5.6), while sophomore Taylor Rusk averages 8.5 points and a team-best 3.0 assists per game.
San Diego State (6-5) is led by 5-9 senior guard McKynsie Fort, who averages 15.8 points per game. Freshman guard Naje Murray averages 10.2 points per contest off the bench.
Thursday’s game, which tips off at 7:30 p.m. MST at Viejas Arena, is the 55th meeting between the two schools and the all-time series is tied at 27 wins apiece.
In their last meeting, Wyoming won 80-67 on Feb. 1 last season in Laramie.
Last year, the Cowgirls won their first seven MW games before finishing 13-5 in conference play.
