Boys prep for Evanston


Things are certainly cut and dry for the Green River High School boy’s basketball team.

If the Wolves (0-20, 0-10 4A West) are able to pick up their first win of the season Thursday night against Evanston, they will advance to the state tournament in Casper. A loss ends their season.

The game at the 4A West Regional Tournament in Evanston will be the third match up this season between the teams. The Red Devils were able to pick up a 75-48 home win in January and a 51-44 road win Feb. 12.

The second game the teams was a close affair with Green River holding a late lead in what was one of their better performances of the season.

Wolves head coach Dan LaRose said Evanston has some really great players that draw their attention.

“You try to limit their touches and make it as hard as possible for those guys, while not allowing the other kids to step in and fill the void. That’s what we did last time,” he said.

Going in to the tournament as the sixth seed, Green River had to wait until last Saturday to see if they would play Evanston or Natrona.

He said the kids felt they match up well against both team.

“That’s all you can ask for is the kids to have confidence,” LaRose said.

Looking towards the Thursday night game at 8:30 p.m., LaRose said it’s tough for a team to beat someone three times and he hopes that rings true for Green River.

He said this week the team has been watching a lot of film and working on specific things in practice that deal with Evanston.

Green River wrapped up the regular season with two home losses last week. The Wolves lost a 52-38 defensive battle last Friday against Casper Natrona. Green River lost 71-44 Saturday to number one ranked Kelly Walsh.
