It took three-overtimes, but the Wyoming Cowgirls rallied Sunday afternoon for a 97-90 triple-overtime victory over Tulsa in the second round of the Women’s NIT. The Cowgirls (17-12) rallied from an 11-point halftime deficit to surge back to force OT and then outlasted the Golden Hurricane in the three extra frames.
“We could have given in, but we didn’t” said UW coach Gerald Mattinson in a school press release. “They took care of business out there and we hit some key shots when we had to.”
The Cowgirls advance to the round of 16, and now get a chance at revenge in this upcoming round against UCLA (16–12) — the team that knocked them out of the 2021 NCAA Tournament. The Cowgirls will host UCLA Thursday, March 24 at 6:30 p.m. in the Arena-Auditorium.
