WyoPreps Preseason Basketball Tour: Lyman Boys [VIDEO]
Coming off a runner-up finish at last season’s 3A state tournament, the Lyman Eagles are looking to carry some momentum into a new year.
The Eagles finished 19-8 last season. They won the 3A Southwest Quadrant at 5-1 and took second to Worland at both the 3A West Regional tournament and the state tournament. Lyman lost both of their all-state players, so they will be looking for more scoring in the 2023-24 season.
Two seniors anticipated to lead the way are Carter Bradshaw and Caleb Smith. They averaged six and four points per game, respectively. Both averaged four rebounds per game last season.
WyoPreps chatted with Bradshaw, Smith, and head coach Barry Hill about the upcoming season. They spoke about how practice has gone, parts of the game that they’ve focused on early, some things that still need to get done, some early goals to get the season going in the right direction, and more.
Coach Hill is in his second season at the helm. It was not a bad debut for Coach Hill, to finish runner-up. Let’s see what he does for an encore. The last time Lyman was in back-to-back title games was in the late 70s.
The Eagles begin the new season hosting the Bridger Valley Tournament. They will play Big Piney, Lovell, and Uintah, UT, in their first games of the year.
