“We played some of our best basketball the season at times and saw what it takes to be successful. In the Tongue River game especially, we were able to get defensive stops and go down and execute on offense. Our goal now is to do a better job of taking care of the basketball and finishing each possession with a shot. We look to be more consistent this week and string together four good quarters on both ends of the court” said Coach Sean Patterson. “The Burns varsity team had a great weekend! They defeated Big Horn. Tongue River, and Kaycee.” Mentioned Patterson. “We have another busy week. We host Mitchell Tuesday, go to Glenrock Friday, and play Lusk at home on Saturday.” told Paatterson.
