The Associated Press - March 13, 2017
LARAMIE, Wyo. - The Wyoming men's basketball team has accepted an invitation to play in the College Basketball Invitational.
The Cowboys will host Eastern Washington of the Big Sky Conference on Wednesday at 7 p.m. in the Arena-Auditorium.
The Pokes are 18-14 on the season under first-year head coach Allen Edwards.
Edwards says it's a tremendous opportunity for his team because the extra game can help propel the Cowboys into next season.
Eastern Washington heads into the game with a 22-11 overall record and finished second in the Big Sky Conference during the regular season.
Wyoming is making its fifth appearance in the 16-team CBI and first since 2014, when UW fell at Texas A&M.
