With the men’s loss at Wyoming Saturday, 2007-08 became the first season in school history that both the men’s and women’s basketball teams started league play 0-4 in the same year. At 0-4, the men are off to the worst start to their league schedule in almost three decades, when they started 0-8 in 1980-81. At 0-5, the women are off to the worst start to their league schedule in more than three decades, when they went 0-13 in the now-extinct IAIAW in 1976-77.
