Recap: Wyoming vs. Lehigh

Laramie, WY (Sports Network) - Nathan Sobey knocked down a 3-pointer at the buzzer as the Wyoming Cowboys slipped by the Lehigh Mountain Hawks, 67-66, in first-round action of the College Basketball Invitational at Arena Auditorium.

Sobey finished with 12 points off the bench for the Cowboys (20-13) as they picked up their 23rd consecutive win over a non-conference foe at Arena Auditorium. Leading the way on offense for the hosts were Derrious Gilmore and Larry Nance Jr. with 25 and 20 points, respectively, the latter clearing seven rebounds.

The Mountain Hawks (21-10) were paced by Gabe Knutson who tallied 23 points, followed by Anthony D'Orazio with 14 in the setback.

Less than six minutes into the meeting the Cowboys owned a 17-7 advantage, but the team still fell behind by a point at the break, 36-35, even after shooting 61.9 percent from the field and an impressive 8-of-10 behind the 3-point line through the first 20 minutes of action.

Despite knocking down only 1-of-7 beyond the arc in the second half, Lehigh found itself with a seven-point advantage with just under six minutes remaining. However, the Pokes closed on a 10-2 run and celebrated following the game-winner by Sobey.

Wyoming ended up shooting better from long distance (11-of-19) than at the free-throw line (6-of-11) on the night.

The Cowboys now await the winner of the North Dakota State/Western Michigan matchup for the next outing on Monday night in the quarterfinals of the tourney.
