CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - Wyoming gets another home game in the Women's National Invitation Tournament when the Cowgirls host Colorado.
But other than the crowd, the Cowgirls won't have as much of a homecourt advantage as it normally enjoys over its opponent.
The Cowgirls (24-8) host Colorado (17-15) in the third round of the WNIT at 7 p.m. Thursday in Laramie.
Boulder is only about 110 miles from Laramie, meaning Colorado won't have much travel time.
Wyoming coach Joe Legerski also notes that the Buffaloes won't be affected as much by the altitude.
The two teams used to play regularly but haven't met since 2007.
Colorado is led by senior forward Brittany Spears, who is averaging 18.5 points and 8.2 rebounds a game. Wyoming is led by senior guard Aubrey Vandiver's 19.1 points and 9.2 rebounds a game.
