Wyoming Cowboys


2012-13: 20-14 (4-12 Mountain West)
In-conference offense: 0.90 points per possession (9th)
In-conference defense: 1.01 points allowed per possession (6th)

Wyoming doesn't appear to have any offensive game-breakers ready to explode, so don't expect coach Larry Shyatt to deviate from his tried-and-true formula: Limit possessions by being as difficult as possible defensively and holding the ball for as long as possible offensively. It's not a style that is a recruit's dream, but it has worked for a program that has now gone to back-to-back postseason tournaments after generally being not very good for the past 25 years.
