A victory for Arkansas-Pine Bluff just wasn’t in the stars on Friday as the team never even grasped a temporary lead. They found themselves the reluctant recipients of an unpleasant 91-71 punch to the gut against the Colorado State Rams. Arkansas-Pine Bluff was surely aware of their 33-point disadvantage in the point spread, but the foreknowledge did nothing to prevent the result. Arkansas-Pine Bluff’s loss came about despite a quality game from guard Shawn Williams, who shot 6-for-13 from beyond the arc and finished with 26 points.
Meanwhile, Wyoming simply couldn’t be stopped on Wednesday, as they easily beat the Detroit Titans at home 85-47.
