NCAA Women's Basketball: Wyoming vs Fresno State

Wyoming's Bailee Cotton pushes the ball up the court in the Cowgirls' game against Fresno State on March 1 at the Arena-Auditorium in Laramie.

The Wyoming women’s basketball team will try to get back to its winning ways Saturday when they play at Air Force.

The Cowgirls (18-6, 11-4 Mountain West) had their nine-game winning streak snapped Wednesday with a 66-64 home loss to Fresno State that essentially cost them any chance of winning the league’s regular season title.

Wyoming is already locked into a top-4 seed for the upcoming MW Championship with two games remaining — vs. San Jose State on Monday and at New Mexico on Thursday — after Saturday’s game against the Falcons (8-10, 4-11 MW).

In the teams’ earlier meeting on Feb. 6 in Laramie the Cowgirls shot a season-best 62.5 percent from the field in rolling to an 80-60 victory.

Seniors Marta Gomez and Bailee Cotton have been the offensive stalwarts for UW this season as Gomez averages a team-best 15.9 points per game and Cotton is pitching in 11.6 points to go along with 8.6 rebounds per game. Kaelin Immel leads Air Force with 13.2 points per game.
