The Wyoming Cowgirl basketball team rebounded with a 55-48 win over the Boise State Broncos, on Saturday afternoon, in Laramie. The Cowgirls are now 11-3 overall on the season and 2-1 in conference action, while the Broncos are 6-8 overall and 1-2 in MW play.
Kaitlyn Mileto finished with 18 points while shooting 6-10 (.600) from the field and 2-3 (.667) from beyond the arc. Marquelle Dent recorded 12 points while Fallon Lewis and Kayla Woodward each chipped in nine. Lewis led the way with 11 rebounds. The Cowgirls were 18-54 (.333) from the field and 15-26 (.577) from the free throw line. Boise State had three players in double-figures led by Miquelle Askew and Yaiza Rodriguez with 12 each. Lexie Der recorded 11 points and 10 rebounds on the night. "At halftime, probably the biggest thing I thought about was on the playground when someone gets fouled you can either take the ball out or shoot a free throw, and the way we shot free throws in the first half I was hoping for a rule change," said head coach Joe Legerski.
