LARAMIE – University of Wyoming coach Jeff Linder didn’t get to see the end of his team’s game Wednesday night with his own two eyes. But even he knows his team grew up against a New Mexico squad that had nothing but upset on its mind.

Linder was ejected toward the end of the first half following a pair of technical foul calls, and under the watchful eyes of assistant Ken DeWeese, who finished the game as acting head coach, the Cowboys were locked in a back-and-forth second half battle with New Mexico, who was playing a “home game” at Air Force’s Clune Arena in Colorado Springs, Colorado, due to COVID-19 health and safety restrictions in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
