LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — Wyoming coach Joe Legerski and three members of the Cowgirl basketball team have been recognized by the Mountain West Conference for their work this season on the court.

Legerski was selected coach of the year by his peers for the second time in his career at Wyoming, while Liv Roberts, Marta Gomez and Taylor Rusk were named to the All-Conference team.

Roberts was named to the All-Mountain West and All-Defensive Teams for the first time in her career while Gomez was selected the sixth player of the year. Rusk earned a spot on the league's All-freshman team.
