Wyoming Faces UNI on Friday in NCAA Second Round in Seattle

(Laramie, Wyo.) – A No. 12 seed has upset a No. 5 seed in the NCAA Championships in 13 of the last 14 seasons. This year’s upset will be the goal of the 12th-seeded University of Wyoming men’s basketball team when the Cowboys face fifth-seeded Northern Iowa in the tournament’s second round on Friday at 11:40 a.m. MT in KeyArena in Seattle. The Pokes (25-9) are receiving votes in both national polls after earning the Mountain West’s automatic bid with upsets of Boise State and San Diego State, while the Panthers (30-3) are No. 11 in the AP poll and No. 9 in the coaches after capturing the Missouri Valley’s automatic bid with a come-from-behind win over Illinois State.
