Home Coming For Casper College T-Birds
Today on the campus of Casper College in Swede Erickson's T-Bird gym it was homecoming for the Casper men's and women's basketball team. That means it was only a dollar to get in the the alumni provided free chili. What more can one want? A buck to get in and free chili? The lady T-Birds upped their record on the season to (21-5) and (12-2) in conference play with a double digit win over the Lady Trappers from Northwest Community College in Powell. The men were not so lucky.
The men's team from Northwest were ranked #20 in the national junior college rankings. And tonight they showed why. The game was tied at half time 39-39. And at one point the T-Birds had the Trappers down by six in the fourth. But the Trappers showed why they are nationally ranked coming away with a win 94-85. The next game for the T-Birds will be Saturday against Central Wyoming.
