Kaycee Girls Basketball Wrap [VIDEO]
The Kaycee girls basketball team entered the 1A state tournament as a #1 seed but it wasn't an easy journey, that's for sure. The Bucs had to hold off Farson-Eden in the quarterfinal round 39-32 as they outscored the Pronghorns 11-6 in the 4th quarter. Tinley Pierson was unbelievable in that game, going 13-14 from the free-throw line en route to 24 points along with 9 rebounds.
In the 1A semi-finals, Kaycee took on Rock River which turned out to be another nail-biter. The Bucs trailed by as many as 7 in that game but rallied to send the game into overtime and prevailed 26-21. Pierson once again led the way for Kaycee with 14 points and that victory send them to the 1A championship against Cokeville.
Everybody knew that Cokeville had a solid team and put that on display as the Buckaroos absorbed a 46-33 loss. Pierson did her part with 16 points but it was a tough shooting day for the team as a whole. Kaycee finished the year with a record of 20-7 and Tinley Pierson was named all-state, averaging 13 points and 5 rebounds per game. Jackie Ramirez and Jade Maya were named all-conference. The future looks bright for Kaycee as this year's team had just one senior.
