Wyoming's NIT Game with Eastern Washington Rescheduled for Thursday

March 18, 2003

LARAMIE, Wyo. -

Wyoming Athletics Director Lee Moon announced Tuesday that the Cowboys' first-round National Invitational Tournament matchup with Eastern Washington has been postponed from Wednesday until Thursday because of the winter storm that has hit Southeastern Wyoming.

The game in the Arena-Auditorium will tip off at 7 p.m. Moon indicated the ticket deadline for season-ticket holders to purchase their regular-season seats is still 11 a.m. Tuesday. Tickets will be available to all buyers after 11 a.m. There are plenty of tickets available, Moon said.

"With this storm we certainly did not want to put Eastern Washington or our fans in any jeopardy," Moon said. "Hopefully things will clear up Wednesday, and the roads will be fine by Thursday."
