TRHS Eagles fall to Greybull 72-39
SHERIDAN — TRHS boys basketball lost to the No. 3 ranked Greybull Buffaloes Friday 72-39.
Head Coach Robert Griffin said he had his team play it safe so that they would be ready to face Sundance at home today.
“We played our starter minutes short for a variety of guys because we have a bigger game tomorrow, but they probably would have gotten us anyway,” Griffin said.
Wyatt Schumacher, Chase Linhart and Lane Dockery each shot seven points in the game.
Today, the Eagles will face Sundance on their home court in Dayton at 4 p.m.
“They’re a big and physical team, so we want to try to keep up with them, but it will be a hard match for us,” Griffin said.
