Wolves turn attention to Rock Springs


The Green River High School girl’s basketball team is hoping the second verse has just a slight difference from the first.

Tomorrow night the Lady Wolves will lock horns with rival Rock Springs for the second time this season.

The game in Rock Springs will be a sequel to a dramatic 42-39 Lady Tigers victory Jan. 29. Green River (2-15, 0-7 4A West) had two three-point shots with time running out that would have given them a one point victory.

Head coach Rick Carroll said the team will need to play confident on offense, try to find more ways to score, and continue to play good defense in the second matchup.

“They have some girls that shoot the ball really well. We need to make sure we keep really good track of them,” he said.

According to Carroll, another key to the game will be rebounding and limiting second chance opportunities for Rock Springs.

Last week, Green River dropped a 48-33 home contest to Evanston, and fell on the road Friday to Riverton, 61-52.

The game against the Wolverines, was the second highest point total this season for the Lady Wolves.

Carroll said the team played with confidence against Riverton and the girls felt like they played well.

“We were right in the game all the way through, and had the lead at time, and that’s something we haven’t had in some time,” he said.

In the game against Riverton, he said Mariah Morin had double digit rebounds.

He said her rebounding performance and Averee Cobb getting eight rebounds against Evanston is something the hope they can keep up.
