The Fresno State men's basketball team beat Wyoming on Wednesday night, 49-36, for its first-ever Mountain West conference win. But there were some notable changes to coach Rodney Terry's lineup:
- Both guard Tyler Johnson (ankle) and forward Kevin Foster (death in the family) returned to the starting lineup after missing the previous game at No. 25 New Mexico.
- Junior guard Kevin Olekaibe did not start for the first time this season, and only played a total of eleven minutes.
- Freshman center Robert Upshaw (Memorial HS) did not play at all.
"We need all our guys," said Terry after the game. "But I'll say this: Everyday we expect guys to punch the clock and do the things we're asking them to do. I mean, we're a program that likes to pride ourself on a lot of accountability and we're gonna have guys grow up. We're gonna help 'em grow up.
"If they're doing what they're supposed to be doing, they'll have an opportunity to play."
The Bulldogs snapped a two-game losing streak in Wednesday night's win over Wyoming. They'll host Nevada on Saturday at 7:00 pm.
