LARAMIE – The Border War meeting in Fort Collins, Colorado, in early January was, in a way, a turning point for both the University of Wyoming and Colorado State men’s basketball teams.

The Rams (17-9 overall, 8-5 Mountain West) entered the Jan. 4 contest 9-7 overall. Including that win in early 2020, a 72-61 victory over the Cowboys, the Rams have surged to an 8-2 record and find themselves in the thick of a muddled middle portion of the MW. UW (6-19, 1-12), meanwhile, has lost nine of 10 games, and finds itself asking questions that it hasn’t had answers for thus far.
