After getting hammered by Fresno State, the Cowboys responded by beating Utah State by 18, giving them some momentum heading to Las Vegas. However, in their win over the Aggies, Wyoming only shot 32% from 3-point range. If they are going to win, they will need to be more consistent from long range. UNLV is a much longer and more talented team in the post than the Aggies, so Wyoming wont be able to get into the lane for easy shots around the rim. That being said, they have the ability to be lethal from long range and that all starts with senior forward Hayden Dalton. If the sharp shooting Dalton, 37% from 3-point range on the season, gets rolling early, that will open up the game for the Cowboys and provide space for the high scoring Justin James to work inside the arch.
