2021 Big Horn Boys Basketball Wrap [VIDEO]
The Big Horn boys basketball team entered their 2A East regional tournament as a #3 seed and it was a win and you're going to state or lose and you're going home in that opening round. The Rams did what they had to do and beat Tongue River in that first regional game 57-54 to punch their ticket and ended up taking 3rd at that regional get-together.
Big Horn played Big Piney in the quarterfinal round and lost 37-34 as they shot just 25% from the floor in the 2nd half. Cade Butler was the only Ram in double figures with 15 on 5-12 from the field. In the consolation round, the Rams stayed alive in the tournament with a 47-40 win over Greybull as they outscored the Buffs 31-15 in the 2nd half. Butler had 11 and Garrett Custis also threw in 11. It was a much better shooting effort for Big Horn as they connected on 52% of their shots in the 2nd half.
In the 5th place contest, Big Horn dropped a close 52-50 decision to Wind River in a game that the Rams trailed in by as many as 11. Butler once again was the leading scorer with a dozen while James Richards had 10. Big Horn finished the season 11-11.
Carson Bates was named all-state for the 2nd straight year and Butler earned all-conference distinction after averaging 14 points per game. Bates and Richards were seniors but Butler was a junior this past season and 6-7 Toby Schons has plenty of potential and he was a sophomore in 2020-21.
