Rock Springs, WY (3/15/19) – The Wyoming Cowgirl basketball team will find out on Monday night their post-season fate. Will it be an at-large invitation to the NCAA Woman’s Basketball Championships or an invitation to the N.I.T.
The Cowgirls’ season resume’ is invite worthy with a 22-8 season record and a second-place finish in the recent Mountain West Conference Tournament. Wyoming has also won 13 of their last 16 games.
