MT / WY All-Star Boys (Round 2)

The odds were really against the Wyoming boy’s All-Stars last night. They had lost to the Montana boy’s Friday by 61 points, they now moved to the Montana home floor in Billing. To make things more difficult their roster was reduced to only eight players when they lost Cameron Jackson when he went down to illness, they had previously lost another player when he simply decided not to show up. Still though they gave the heavily favored Montana boy’s a real contest.

Montana lead for most of the game but the Wyoming boys would not go away, and even lead a handful of times. It was not until a late 4th quarter push by Montana lead by Josh Huestis that Montana was able to put Wyoming behind them for good. Huestis who had a pretty quiet night for the first three quarters before scoring 12 points in the final quarter and finishing with 19 points, 11 rebounds, 4 blocked shots on the night.

Wyoming stayed close most of the night with some great perimeter shooting and great leadership by Gillette’s Daniel Estes who finished with 19 points as well as Slade Spoonhunter with 13 points. In the end though I really thing the short bench for Wyoming hurt them in the forth quarter.  In the end the Montana Boy’s pulled out a 91 to 75 point win.

One down side to the evening came very late in the 4th quarter when Wyoming’s 6-5 Matt Mordecai “hard fouled” Montana’s 5-11 Brian Muller and sent him sprawling. Mordecai had been playing a rather physical brand of defense the in both games so was not in good favor with most of Montana big guy’s and a nanosecond after the “hard foul” on the Montana’s 6-5 Pearson and 6-5 Stulc got real up and personal with Mordecai and expressed their displeasure with his play. The refs interceded and escorted Mordecai to the bench.

Over all I thought this Montana boy’s all-star team was one of the best in the 35 year history of the event. It had its big star, but also a deep roster of versatile team oriented players. The talent was also very well spread out, and there was not a weakness at any position. Great job guys!
