Last week, I took a look at the University of Wyoming football team’s 2019 season, graded each position group and projected what those grades might look like a year from now. It was a lot of fun; like, too much fun. I guess I miss school, because handing out grades was a thrill. So I thought to myself: “Why not do the same for basketball?”
Yes, the Cowboys are 5-14 and have yet to win a Mountain West game. They are one of the worst offensive teams in America (and in school history) by nearly every metric. But I don’t think grading a team is as easy as looking solely at numbers on the offensive or defensive end of the floor. The stats aren’t good, but is UW as bad as it looks? Let’s see.
