The Wyoming Cowboys, led by Head Coach Allen Edwards, won the CBI championship in Laramie tonight. Edwards is a former VCU assistant under AG. Tony Pujols, another Grant assistant, is a Wyoming assistant. The Cowboys pounded Coastal Carolina. Cliff Ellis brought oxygen along for his team to compete at 7200 feet, but it wasn't enough.........

Allen is simply dusting off an old VCU/Wyoming connection.

In 1988, former Rams' sideline boss Benny Dees led the Cowboys to a 26-6 record, and eventual loss to Loyola-Marymount in NCAA first round - perhaps highest scoring tourney game in NCAA history, 119-115.

The season before, while at New Orleans, Benny's Privateers beat BYU in first round of NCAAs.

Jamion was interviewed yesterday on a local (DC) sports radio show. Unfortunately I only caught a minute of it. I'll try to find a link if possible
