CJC and UW Alumni Association Pre-Game Hospitalities Planned for the 2010 MWC Basketball Tournament

March 8, 2010

LARAMIE, Wyo. -

The University of Wyoming Cowboy Joe Club and the UW Alumni Association will co-host pre-game hospitalities each day the Wyoming men's and women's basketball teams play a game in the 2010 Mountain West Conference Basketball Tournament. The ESPN Zone at the New York New York Hotel and Casino will be the official pre-game location for Wyoming Fans to gather.

The New York New York is located at the intersection of Las Vegas Boulevard and Tropicana Avenue just 2 miles from the Thomas & Mack Center, the site for the 2010 MWC Basketball Tournament.

The ESPN Zone will serve great food and offer a cash bar to Wyoming fans. The hospitalities will begin 2 1/2 hours before tip-off and last until 1/2 hour prior to each game.

The projected schedule for the pre-game receptions follows and of course is dependent on whether the Cowboys or Cowgirls advance to each round of the Tournament. The two guaranteed receptions will be Tuesday, March 9 prior to the Cowgirls' first round game and on Wednesday, March 10 prior to the Cowboys' first round game.
