Chiefs beat Buffs, 68-52

Feb 24, 2017 By Randy Tucker, Staff Writer

Wyoming Indian's Buell Robinson scored a game-high 26 points in an opening-round victory over Greybull.

Rain delays are common at major league ballparks across the nation, but not usually in a late winter regional basketball tournament.

Wyoming Indian and Greybull battled at Central Wyoming College's Rustler Gym until 2:47 remained in the third period when water began to pour out of a ventilator shaft in front of the Greybull bench.

The leak couldn't be stopped and the game was halted and moved to Riverton Middle School after a 30-minute delay.

The Chiefs won the bumper match with the Buffs, 68-52, after each team beat the other by big margins during the regular season.

Leading 41-25 after a 6-0 run capped by a Natuin Trosper layup at the interruption, the two squads played evenly in the substitute venue.

The win sets up a return to one of Wyoming's best tournament rivalries when the Chiefs face the Lovell Bulldogs at 4:30 p.m. at Wolverine Gym.

Buell Robinson played his familiar roll as leading scorer for the Chiefs with 26 points, but Latrell Ferris also had an excellent floor game finishing with 12.

Dustin Fox paced the Buffs behind four 3-pointers with 13 points, while Dawson Forcella scored 11 and Dante Sylvester 10.

Greybull faced Kemmerer in an elimination game at 10 a.m. Friday.
