New Mexico vs. Wyoming: Getting roasted in The Pit of the West 65-53

By Lara Boyko - March 09, 2007

New Mexico's home court is affectionately called 'The Pit.'

In The Pit, their fans are loud and it can be quite intidimating if you are on the opposing team.

Well, if New Mexico couldn't play their tournament in The Pit then their fans would have to turn the Thomas & Mack Center into a Pit of their own, which has been accomplished.

While the commentary from the crowds is entertaining, it is the action on the court where the Lobos are now roasting the Cowgirls that is giving New Mexico fans lots of fodder.

New Mexico just edged out Wyoming in shooting (45% vs. 43%), but the Lobos controlled the boards (33 vs. 26) and teaching the Cowgirls that making shots at the free throw line makes a difference.

The Lobos shot 73% from the charity stripe while the Cowgirls shot 67%.

The game is over now and New Mexico are the first to make it into tomorrow's final.

Stay tuned...more wrap up on the way...

New Mexico 65
Wyoming 53
