Chief girls defeat Riverside, Greybull in conference play

Feb 3, 2013 - By Randy Tucker, Staff Writer

The Wyoming Indian Lady Chiefs picked up a pair of wins over Class 2-A Northwest opponents this weekend. It was easy at home on Friday with a 60-27 win over Riverside, but it took an extra four minutes of play Saturday at Greybull as Wyoming Indian beat the Buffs 56-47 in overtime.

Friday the Chiefs rolled to a huge 39-8 lead, limiting Riverside to just three baskets in the opening half. The game was out of reach from early in the first period.

Jasmine McGill and Kanani Washakie paced Wyoming Indian with 11 and 10 points, respectively. Six of Washakie's eight points came from the line, a place she would become very familiar with on the weekend. After hitting six of eight on Friday, Washakie went to the line 13 times in Greybull and hit seven of them.

At Greybull the game was tight in the opening period with the score knotted at the end of one. The Buffs put a scare in the Chiefs, taking a nine-point lead in the second quarter behind a 20-point burst.

Wyoming Indian's defense picked up in the third period, with the Chiefs holding Greybull to just a single basket and a pair of free throws.

The final period was close throughout, and the game went into overtime.In the extra period, Wyoming Indian's defense picked up again, holding Greybull to a single basket.

On the Chiefs' end of the floor Brindi Lock, Washakie and McGill all scored. The team hit five of eight from the line to preserve the win.

Wyoming Indian can secure a second- or third-place seed with a sweep of Kemmerer and Big Piney at home this weekend. The girls can still avoid a pigtail game with a split.
