There must be something about playing in Buffalo for the Douglas High School girls’ basketball team. A record and a triple-double were recorded.

Last Friday night (Jan. 22), the top-ranked Bearcats defeated the Buffalo Bison, 67-44, in a Class 3A conference quadrant game.

Senior point guard Joslin Igo, No. 30 in the picture, set a new state record with 18 assists in the game. This is according to records kept by wyoming-basketball.com. It surpasses the previous mark of 15, which was held by three players, including Igo.

The old state record of 15 assists in a single game was established by Rachel Gazdik of Sheridan against Natrona County in the 1994-95 season. It was matched by Kirstin Gourlay of Little Snake River in a game versus Big Piney in the 2015-16 season. Igo became the third to reach 15 assists in a game when she dished out that many against Pinedale last season in Buffalo.

Igo is also one of seven players with 14 assists in a game. She accomplished that in a game against Lovell, also last season in Buffalo.

Not to be out-done, but reigning Gatorade Wyoming Girls Basketball Player of the Year, senior Allyson Fertig, No. 45 in the picture above, produced a monster triple-double last Friday night.

Fertig officially scored 39 points, grabbed 20 rebounds, and had 11 blocked shots. It was the fifth triple-double of her career and fourth against Buffalo, according to Douglas head coach Cody Helenbolt. The points are a new career-high. She has grabbed 26 rebounds in a game and blocked 14 shots in a game. Both of those career-bests were versus the Bison.

The Bearcats are 10-0 this season with a 3-0 record in conference quadrant games. Their closest margin of victory this season has been 17 points. That was in a game against Class 4A No. 2 ranked Natrona County on Dec. 19, 2020. They already have four victories over Class 4A teams this season.
