GR seeks win over Evanston


February 13, 2019

The Wolves have had tremendous success in two games during the weekend.

Green River scored two wins, a 62-41 victory over Riverton Feb. 8, and a 70-43 win over Cody a day later. These wins come after a mixed week for the Wolves, suffering a 64-52 defeat at home from Kelly Walsh and a 83-51 win over Rock Springs.

“We have played well our last four games and have put together four, solid quarters each game,” head coach Laurie Ivie said. “The consistency has been something we’ve really been focusing on, and our guys have finally started showing that for an entire game.”

Ivie said the Wolves started strong in the games against Riverton and Cody, gaining momentum early on. The Wolves held both teams’ top players to scores lower than their season averages, pressuring the two teams defensively.

“I am very proud with the way we’ve been playing defensively,” Ivie said.

Thursday, the Wolves will have a rematch against the Evanston Red Devils at home. In their last meeting, the Red Devils came away with a 59-52 win. Ivie said the Wolves are in a better position to face Evanston this time as the team is playing better basketball now. According to Ivie, the Wolves only played one good quarter during their first meeting with the Red Devils.

With the season winding down, the Wolves will have only four more games until Regionals in Cody Feb. 28. Last year, the Wolves failed to advance to the state tournament.

Ivie said the team has every intention of competing for a regional championship and advancing to the state tournament.
