Wyoming Men’s Basketball Team Confident It Will Exceed Outside Expectations | Men’s basketball

Colorado State, which escaped with a 74-72 victory to Laramie on the way to a Border War sweep last season, is the 2021-22 preseason favorite. SDSU was screened second. Nevada, a team swept by UW, is ranked third.

“I’m not really doing too much of a media poll,” Linder said. “Plus, perception is reality, and it’s our job as a program to prove that over the season and to prove that we are a growing program. I don’t necessarily agree with where we were chosen. It doesn’t really matter in the long run, that’s where we end in March.

“If we can keep the good guys healthy and keep improving, I think we can compete with anyone in the league. “

Four players – Maldonado, Kenny Foster, Brendan Wenzel and Noah Reynolds – were excluded from last Saturday’s public scrum due to injuries.

Linder said the squad should be full before the opener against Detroit Mercy on Nov. 10 at the Arena-Auditorium.

DuSell averaged 9.7 points, set a record 57 3-pointers and shot 45.6% behind the arc last season. Graham averaged 11.2 points, 5.4 rebounds and shot 60.2% from the field in 12 games after being cleared to play with a knee injury in high school.

Maldonado is the returning top scorer (12.5 points per game) for the MWC’s most successful team (76.5 points per game).
