Wyoming drops UCCS to 0-4

By Doug Fitzgerald published December 5, 2005

Don Quixote has nothing on the Mountain Lions.

Miguel de Cervantes mythical hero jousted with windmills, imagining that they were giants.

The Mountain Lions have been jousting with giants while trying to catch their wind.

The University of Colorado at Colorado Springs was beaten 105-67 by the Division I Wyoming Cowboys Monday night at Laramie, Wyo. UCCS is now 0-4 with two losses to Division I teams and the other two to Division II power Grand Canyon.

Patrick Hannaway led the Mountain Lions with 24 points, nine rebounds and three blocks. Bryan Snyder added 13 points and Leo Thomas had nine.

Justin Williams led Wyoming (4-3) with 20 points, one of six Cowboys to score in double figures. The 6-foot-10 center also blocked seven shots.

The Cowboys scored the first 18 points of the game before a Snyder 3-pointer finally got UCCS on the board after 4½ minutes of play. With the score 23-3, Hannaway scored six straight points to cut the deficit to 14. UCCS never got closer than that.

UCCS opens its Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference schedule Thursday against Chadron State at the U.S. Olympic Training Center. The Mountain Lions will face Fort Hays State on Saturday at the Lionsâ€TM Den.
