First and foremost, let's remember the great season that our Wyoming Cowboys and Cowgirls had. The Cowboys made an appearance in the NCAA Tournament and the Cowgirls made it to the Sweet Sixteen of the NIT. What a show they put on! They are both prime examples of why Laramie basketball fandom is hyped. And despite not having an NBA team in southeast Wyoming, Laramie ranks pretty well in terms of overall basketball fans.
The NCAA tournaments for college basketball may be over for the 2020-21 season, but the NBA Playoffs are just getting started. Every basketball fan has a team they root for whether it is at the collegiate or professional level and a recent study showed where Laramie ranks in terms of the best cities for basketball fans.
