Rustler Men 0-1 in Conference Play

 #11 Casper College (16-1)  118  CWC Men  (5-11) 72

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.  

  • Central is 0-1 in league play and has lost 4 straight.  
  • 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.   
  • 118 is also the most points allowed by a Central Men's team since bringing the sport back.
  • #11 Casper is 16 and 1 now and has won 13 in a row.  They average 106 points per game.
