The game has really started to slow down for Wyoming super senior Mason Walters. He missed the first ten games of the season with a thumb injury. Since coming back, he’s really began to settle in to his role with the team. Walters is currently averaging 13 points and five rebounds a game for the Pokes, playing about 32 minutes a game. Walters–who transfered from Jamestown University as the reigning NAIA National Player of the Year–says those first few games were a bit of a struggle, but he feels like he’s really settled in nicely.

“That UTEP tournament, I was kind of sped up a little bit my first game, but settled down and found my role, and did the best to my abilities,” said Walters. “The games started to slow down for me even more now, and so I’m starting to feel more comfortable out there. And just the overall confidence in myself and the team, I can tell everyone is starting to gel together and be more and more comfortable each game. It’s an awesome thing to be a part of, and I’m looking forward to the rest of the season.”

Wyoming is back in action this (Tuesday) evening to host #25 New Mexico in the AA. Tip off is set for 6:30 pm against the Lobos.
