LARAMIE — The Wyoming men’s basketball team is taking its game to the Wind River Indian Reservation this fall.
UW will begin the 2012-13 season by hosting Fort Lewis College for an exhibition game at 7 p.m. on Oct. 31 in Ethete (EE’-thuh-tee). A collaboration between the Cowboys and the Nike N7 program, the contest will be played at the Wyoming Indian High School.
Coach Larry Shyatt says one of the team’s most important goals is to rebuild a strong relationship with fans throughout the state.
Nike N7 is Nike’s commitment to bring sport and all of its benefits to Native American and aboriginal communities across North America.
As part of the outreach, the Cowboys will also visit the Wyoming Indian Elementary school on the day of the game.
