The Terry Terriers varsity boys’ basketball team entered the district 4-C tournament with a bit of good news - sophomore guard Trevor Pisk was medically cleared to play. With that good news and knowing that they had split regular season games with Northern Cheyenne, their first tourney opponent, Terry had to be feeling better about their chances in the tournament.
Unfortunately, the Eagles proved to be too strong, taking a 20-9 first quarter lead and soaring through the rest of the game for a 82-66 victory.
Terry was able to play fairly evenly with the Eagles for most of the game - the real difference showing up in the teams shooting performances, with the team from Busby outshooting the Terriers by nearly 2-to-1.
The Terriers moved to the losers out bracket, facing off against the Plevna Cougars.
In this early morning game the Terriers completely dominated the Cougars. The scoring troubles that had plagued the Terriers the day before were not a problem as Terry lit Plevna up with a 62-34 trouncing.
Moving forward with their victory and needing just one more win to cement a spot in the upcoming Southern C divisional tournament, the Terry Terriers had only to beat the St. Labre Braves.
St. Labre started the tournament as one of the favorites, but was upset by Ekalaka and sent to the consolation bracket. Bringing a lot of quickness and prolific scorers the Braves proved to be more than the Terriers could handle, winning the game 75-55.
