The Casper men lived up to their 11th ranking in the nation with a 118-72 win over Central to begin Region 9 play. Casper built a 12 point lead early only to Central climb to within five at about the 8 minute mark. The Thunderbirds went on a 15 to 2 run to lead by 18. They would finish off the half with a 25 point lead, 59 to 34. Casper was 64% shooting in the first half hitting 23 of 37 shots in going up by 25.
The second half was more of the same as the T-Birds cruised. Central played much of the 2nd half without their head coach and were also down a player after both received two technicals.

- The 46 point loss is the most in modern CWC men's basketball history. The previous most was 32, also at the hands of Casper in 2016 under Pat Rafferty.
