The defending 2A state champions in boys basketball is Wyoming Indian and the pandemic put a crimp in their style. Right after the 2A state tournament in March, the school was closed due to coronavirus concerns and didn't re-open until just recently. So there was a ton of remote learning but the coaches and basketball players didn't do anything organized for close to 11 months. The Chiefs didn't start practicing until a couple of weeks ago and are expecting 13 players to be on their roster. 10 of them were in uniform for their season opener on Thursday night against Wind River.

The Cougars already had played 10 games and were 5-6 entering the contest. As usual, Wyoming Indian-Wind River boy's games is an up and down the floor adventure. The pace is fast and faster but Wind River took advantage of some cold shooting from the Chiefs en route to a 63-41 win. The Cougars had three guys in double figures; Wiley Shearer with 13, Trey Mullholland with 11, and Jaden Miller with 10. Wyoming Indian had three players with 7 points apiece; Austin Hill, Brandon Coffee, and Michael Willow.

Here's some of the video from Thursday night's game in Pavillion. Enjoy!
