It took overtime but the Cowgirls were able to hold on and move into round three of the WNIT Tuesday night in Laramie by a score of 68-57. The Cowgirls won’t have much time to rest as it will face BYU Thursday night at the AA. This is becoming eerily similar to the Cowgirls championship run in 2007. I think it is a little unfortunate to have to play a conference rival in the tournament just because I’d like to see a team from another conference but on the other hand at least the Cowgirls will know what to expect. The Cowgirls split its two previous meetings against the Cougars this season winning handily at the AA and losing by three in Provo. There should be a little bit different atmosphere at the AA this time around, however, making it that much more tough for BYU. Go Cowgirls!
