Wyoming guard Noah Reynolds didn’t play in last year’s NCAA Tournament First Four game against Indiana. Reynolds was emotional about that, but realized that was on him, for not proving that he belonged on the floor to help the Cowboys. That drove Reynolds to get better this offseason. Cowboy head coach Jeff Linder says that Reynolds is one of the most improved players on the roster. Reynolds says that not playing in the NCAA Tournament definitely motivated him.
“The Indiana game I didn’t play, so I had a lot of emotions after that game. Mostly I realized that a lot of it was on me, of not proving that I was able to help my team at that point in the season.” Reynolds added, “I realized that, so I just knew that I wanted to come back and get to that point again, and play this year in the tournament, so I’ll be able to say I played in the game. Because I can’t say that yet, even though we went, I can’t say that yet.”
Wyoming opens up their season Monday night, as they host Colorado Christian at 7 pm in the Arena Auditorium.
