Sheridan Boys Basketball Wrap [VIDEO]
The Sheridan boys basketball team had some lofty goals in 2018-19 and sometimes you can have a great season and still fall short of your goals. The Broncs did win 24 games this past season but we're looking to take home the 4A State Championship trophy. They had the talent to do it, no question but the chips didn't fall their way. In the first round of the state tournament, Sheridan drilled Evanston 67-42 in a game where they led by as many as 30 points. Tristan Bower led the way with 16, Sam Lecholat had 15 and 13 rebounds, Parker Christensen chipped in 14 and Gus Wright had 11. Their 4A semi-final game with Gillette was a back and forth affair with 11 lead changed and 10 ties. Sheridan's last-second shot was off the mark and the Camels prevailed 71-68. Bower was phenomenal with 29 points with Wright pouring in 19. Now the Broncs did take 3rd place in 4A with a 73-61 win over Cheyenne East, thanks to a 26-9 advantage in the 2nd quarter. Wright was 10-15 from the field and had 25 points. Bower added 14 and Lecholat had 12. This was a group that had 4 all-state selections. Bower threw in 20 points per game, Wright averaged 14 with Lecholat and Christensens each putting in 11 per contest. The Broncs will say goodbye to Bower and Christensen but Wright and Lecholat return. They'll be formidable again.
