The Cougars will most likely travel to Shoshoni for an opening round regional "pigtail" game a week from Monday. It was a tough weekend for the Wind River boys in Class 2-A Southwest action at home. On Friday the Cougars led early but fell behind in the second and lost their second game of the season to the Kemmerer Rangers 50-39. Big Piney secured the second -place seed in the Southwest with an 81-58 win over the Cougars on Saturday. The pair of losses leaves the Cougars with a single conference win and a final home game against league champion Wyoming Indian this Friday. The Cougars will most likely travel to Shoshoni for an opening round regional "pigtail" game a week from Monday. When you live by the three, you can die by the 3-point shot as well. The Cougars have played well when they've shot well from the perimeter, but that didn't happen Friday. They hit a combined one of 10 from beyond the arc in the opening half and didn't fare much better in the second, hitting just two 3-pointers on the game. Kemmerer took advantage of a sizable height difference, taking the ball inside repeatedly against the smaller Wind River defenders. A high point in the game was the return of senior post Ryan Weliever after a three-week absence due to a severely sprained ankle. Weliever gave the Cougars a presence in the post, and his return just two weeks before the regional tournament is a boost to the squad. Outside shots were hard to come by for the freshman-laden squad, but Caleb C'Bearing tallied 21 points on quick drives and jump shots. C'Bearing couldn't find the range from well beyond the arc, missing five long-range attempts in the opening half and talking only two shots from 3-point range in the second. Kemmerer guard Kodi Kaskoli tallied 16 points, and center Tre Deeter hit a dozen.
