COWBOY JOE CLUB - We have more today from Monday's Wyoming Cowboy Joe club visit to Sheridan as we hear from Cowboy basketball coach Larry Shyatt and more from Athletics Director Tom Burman.

The Cowboy basketball team more than doubled their win total this past season as Larry Shyatt returned to the university to take over the Men's basketball program.

In 2009 ans 2010 the Pokes won a total of 20 games combined Shyatt led them to 21 victories this past season and got them into the college basketball invitation tournament.

Shyatt gave the credit to the senior class for the dramatic turn around. And he says they have a lot to do to get the next addition of the Cowboys ready to go for the 2012-13 season.

Over the last two season the Mountain West Conference has been gutted with four of the league's top schools leaving for different conferences or in BYU's case going independent. BYU and UTAH left first followed by TCU and Boise state although the Broncos are still in the league this fall.
