Wyoming Cowboys Basketball TicketsThe University of Wyoming men's basketball team was founded in 1905 when locals in the town of Laramie challenged a team of men from the university to a game. After this unusual beginning, the program went on to be a dominating force in the 1930s under legendary head coach Willard Witte. The team even went on to win the NCAA Tournament Championship in 1943, beating Georgetown University in the championship game. That season, the Cowboys were led by Ken Sailors, who went on to win the tournament's Most Outstanding Player Award. Since then, the program has won numerous conference titles and has made multiple postseason appearances. The 2018–2019 season wasn't a banner year for the Cowboys. The team managed eight wins by the end of the season. Wyoming did have one player talented enough to get drafted into the NBA, Justin James. James was drafted by the Sacramento Kings with the 40th pick in the second round. Easily search for and buy your tickets to Wyoming Cowboys basketball games at StubHub.
