Wyoming All-Star Girls Basketball Preview with Liz Lewis [VIDEO]
Just like their male counterparts, the Wyoming girls’ all-stars will be trying to topple Montana for the first time in a while in the annual basketball series.
For the first time, the Pronghorn Center at Gillette College will host the Wyoming portion of the two-game series on Friday night. Saturday’s game will be in Lockwood, MT.
On Tuesday, WyoPreps’ David Settle spoke with Gillette College women’s basketball coach Liz Lewis, who serves as the head coach for Team Wyoming. She spoke about hosting this year’s game on Friday night, how they’ll prepare in a short time, facing a good Montana team, and some keys for her team.
