Townsquare Media

After being ejected from last Saturday’s game against Utah State with 5:37 left in the second half, Wyoming Cowboy sophomore guard Josh Adams has been suspended one game by the Mountain West Conference.

The following is the release from the MW office:

Wyoming sophomore guard Josh Adams has been issued a one-game suspension following his ejection from the Utah State at Wyoming contest on Saturday, Feb. 1. Adams was assessed the penalty for striking an opponent, in violation of MW Sportsmanship Rules 4.2-a and 4.4.1.

Adams will be prohibited from participating in Wyoming’s next men’s basketball game, which is scheduled for Wednesday, Feb. 5 at New Mexico.

The MW expressed appreciation for the support of the MW Sportsmanship Policy by the Wyoming administration. The Mountain West will have no further comment regarding this case. The provisions of the MW Sportsmanship Policy can be found in Rule 4 of the MW Handbook – which can be accessed via the TheMW.com website.

The University of Wyoming released the following statement from Athletic Director Tom Burman:

“Our teams are committed to good sportsmanship and the sportsmanship standards established by the Mountain West Conference,” said Burman. “We know Josh (Adams) is disappointed in his actions late in the game on Saturday versus Utah State, and he is disappointed that his actions will cause him to miss this Wednesday’s game at New Mexico. But we accept the one-game suspension, and we will support him as he learns from this experience. We look forward to having him back for the game on Saturday at UNLV.”

The University of Wyoming Athletics Department will have no further comment regarding Adams’ one-game suspension.

Adams will return to the court Saturday when the Cowboys play at UNLV.
