It's was an ugly, sloppy, hard fought game marred by turnovers, miscues, fouls, time outs and physical play.  Wyoming led Colorado State all the way, then nearly squandered a double digit advantage in the second half.

Star forward Larry Nance Jr. was hobbled with a thigh bruise and saddled with 4 fouls. Then, with 30 seconds left in a one point game, reserve guard Jason McManamen, the pride of Torrington, Wyoming, came off the bench and hit the biggest shot of his life. His clutch three pointer helped seal a huge win for the 14-2 Cowboys, who moved to 3-0 in the Mountain West Conference.

Up in the cheap seats, a large contingent of Cowboys fans chanted "W-Y-O", while the dejected home crowd headed for the exits.

The two arch rivals will meet again next month, when the Rams travel to Laramie for a rematch at the AA. And don't be surprised if there's a third border war in the Mountain West Conference Tournament.
