The Wyoming jinx continued for No. 5 Utah. Gregg Sawyer hit two free throws and Justin French made a three-point play in the final 1:26 as Wyoming upset the visting Runnin' Utes, 62-56, last night. The Utes have not won at Wyoming since 1993 - when NBA rookie Keith Van Horn was a freshman. Wyoming coach Larry Shyatt said it was nothing magical, just patience. "We played one of the finest teams in the country tonight. They are extremely well coached," Shyatt said.

An agonizingly long wait for Haddon Heights football star Derek Armah turned out to be worth it in the end. Armah has signed a letter of intent with the University of Wyoming, a Division I-A team that competes in the Western Athletic Conference, Heights coach Al Mailahn said. Armah, an elusive 5-foot-11 185-pounder, played quarterback and defensive back and returned kicks for the Garnet last season. He led Heights to a 9-2 record and a share of the Colonial Conference title.

My home is below granite cliffs, my bed is pine needles, my roof a sky of tangerine and red. As September comes to Wyoming, the sandhill cranes that wade the shallow ponds of this moraine grow restless as night temperatures dip into the 30s. Already the aspen forest's wavering edge is shot through with yellow, and beyond, in a huge meadow, a herd of pronghorn antelope, led by a mother and her twins, start running. Who knows why? Then I see: A black bear has rambled out from beyond the curtain of trees.

University of Wyoming officials began an investigation yesterday into allegations that former Cowboys forward Fennis Dembo accepted cash payments before his senior season. The allegations, published yesterday in the Rocky Mountain News, were attributed to the high school coach of a Colorado recruit who visited Wyoming last fall. Wyoming athletic director Paul Roach said that he had notified the NCAA's compliance division of the allegations. The article in the Denver newspaper alleged that Dembo, now with the Detroit Pistons, was seen receiving an undetermined amount of cash on two occasions.

In Wyoming, choreographer Terry Beck renders the most elusive of subjects in the best way possible, as metaphor. This theater piece, which the Terry Beck Troupe premiered last night at the MTI Tabernacle Theater, is a haunting flow of images about the passage of time and the way people of different ages respond to it and each other. Inspired by the idea of the hourglass, the central metaphor in Wyoming is sand - sand trickling out of a hand, falling almost silently from sandbags suspended from the ceiling, or in one episode careening from a bag with such force you fear for the people standing near it. The falling sand makes beautiful sounds.

Seven-foot Brad Sellers had 23 points, 13 rebounds and 9 blocked shots and Dennis Hopson also scored 23 points as Ohio State, under lame-duck coach Eldon Miller, defeated Louisiana Tech, 79-66, last night to reach the final of the National Invitation Tournament at Madison Square Garden. Miller, fired Feb. 3, effective at the end of the season, and already hired by Northern Iowa, will lead the Buckeyes into tomorrow night's championship game against Wyoming, which beat Florida, 67-58, in the other semifinal.

Fennis Dembo scored a career-high 41 points to lead Wyoming to a 78-68 upset of UCLA in the NCAA West Region second round yesterday in Salt Lake City. The Cowboys (24-9) took control in the final 5 minutes of the game to earn a shot at No. 1-ranked Nevada-Las Vegas on Friday at the West Region semifinals in Seattle. UCLA (25-7) took the lead early in the first half and held it, but never by more than eight points, until Wyoming's surge. Wyoming outscored the Bruins 18-4 over the final 6 1/2 minutes.

Loyola-Marymount might have opened some eyes in the West Regional yesterday, but for the Lions it was business as usual. The Lions, coached by former La Salle coach Paul Westhead and fueled by ex- Dobbins stars Bo Kimble and Hank Gathers, outlasted Wyoming, 119-115, in an NCAA first-round game that was the highest-scoring matchup in tournament history. Loyola (28-3) thus advances to a second-round game tomorrow against North Carolina, which defeated North Texas State. In the other second-round game, Florida, which defeated St. John's, will meet Michigan, which trimmed Boise State.

Andre Emmett scored 27 points and Kasib Powell added 17 and seven assists to help Texas Tech defeat Wyoming, 90-84, yesterday in Lubbock, Texas. The win extended Tech's win streak to eight heading into Big Twelve Conference play. Tech (11-1) nearly squandered an 18-point halftime lead. Wyoming's defense toughened and the Red Raiders' shooting turned cold during a 17-4 Cowboys run early in the second half. Wyoming (9-4) pulled within four inside the final minute. Tech, however, made 6 of 8 free throws in the final 30 seconds to hold off the Cowboys.

CHRIS JOYNES JR. always had a taste for travel, but until recently, the farthest the 17-year-old high school student had gone was a childhood trip to Niagara Falls. That changed when he started Summer Search, a national nonprofit program that partners promising low-income high school students with mentors who help shepherd them through high school and college. It also offers them opportunities for transformative travel during their sophomore and junior years. First trip for Joynes, an incoming senior at Boys' Latin Charter School of Philadelphia, was a monthlong backpack trip into Wyoming's rugged Wind River Range last July.

Perhaps Stephen Jimenez never saw the 1962 western The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance , with John Wayne and Jimmy Stewart. He may be unfamiliar with the film's moral: "This is the West, sir. When the legend becomes fact, print the legend. " Back in 2000, when Jimenez first went to Laramie, Wyo., it was to research a made-for-TV screenplay based on the notorious murder of Matthew Shepard. Shepard, a gay 21-year-old student at the University of Wyoming, was tied to a fence and viciously pistol-whipped in 1998.

Liz Cheney to run in Wyo. CHEYENNE, Wyo. - Former Vice President Dick Cheney's daughter Liz Cheney will run against Wyoming's senior U.S. senator in next year's Republican primary, her campaign said Tuesday. Liz Cheney, 46, is the elder of Dick Cheney's two daughters. Her announcement is a political challenge unlike anything Wyoming has seen for years, maybe decades. Republicans in the state rarely challenge incumbents of their own party in national office. All three members of the state's congressional delegation and all statewide elected officials are Republican.
