OREM, Utah - Off of Monday's win over Northern Illinois at home, Utah Valley University will make the trip to Laramie to face Wyoming on Wednesday at 7 p.m. in the Arena-Auditorium. The game can be heard live on 960 AM the Zone and on WolverineGreen.com.
The Wolverines improved to 4-3 with the win over NIU behind 15 points from Isiah Williams and 12 points and 11 rebounds from Geddes Robinson. Keawe Enos scored 11 points, his high as a Wolverine, and helped key a 14-0 run in the second half to help UVU pull away.
Utah Valley, which is among others receiving votes in the CollegeInsider.com Mid-Major Top 25 poll, is facing Wyoming for the first time ever and a school from the Mountain West Conference for just the second time.
"Wyoming is playing very well right now," UVU coach Dick Hunsaker said. "They're playing with a very balanced attack and getting good production off of their bench."
The Cowboys (6-1) have won four straight, winning their own Jim Thorpe Classic over the weekend with victories over Portland State, Maryland Eastern Shore and Louisiana Tech. Under first-year head coach Larry Shyatt, Wyoming is a perfect 6-0 at home. The Wolverines and Cowboys will also meet on Jan. 3 at the UCCU Center in Orem live on Fox College Sports.
After Wednesday's game, Utah Valley returns home Friday to host Haskell University before an in-state match up at Utah State next Tuesday, Dec. 6.
