LARAMIE – A week before the season started, Wyoming redshirt sophomore guard Hunter Maldonado said the scoring role former Cowboys star Justin James previously held was going to be split among a number of Wyoming players.

James averaged better than 22 points per game a season ago for the Pokes but is currently displaying his talents in the NBA for the Sacramento Kings. A single player couldn’t replace James’ production, both Maldonado and senior guard Jake Hendricks agreed.
