Trojans keep WRHS boys under wraps

Hoops in eastern Idaho

Boys' basketball players from Wood River High School traveled to eastern Idaho Tuesday and swallowed a big dose of 4A High Country Conference hoops in the form of the Rigby Trojans—a pre-season favorite for the 2012 State 4A title.

Rigby (2-0), executing its transition offense with aplomb, hammered the Wolverines (0-3) by a score of 73-31. Trojans senior guard Kamen McCullough (17 points) and Utah transfer guard Tanner Chambers chipped in with 16 points and four 3-pointers in the rout.

Last winter, Rigby (16-12) went two-and-out in the State 4A tourney won by conference rival Madison of Rexburg 53-51 (OT) over Skyview. Yet Rigby graduated only three players from that team and may return with fourth-year coach Justin Jones for a longer state run.

Wood River contributors Tuesday included Stone Sutton (8 points, 3 steals) and Austin Hafer (5 points, 4 assists). The Hailey junior varsity lost by 31, and the freshman team (2-1) took its first loss 53-42 despite 12 points by Conner Hayes and 10 by Cody Carter.

Thursday night, the Wolverines hosted the Buhl Tribe (1-2 after Tuesday's 44-32 home win over Canyon Ridge). The Hailey boys travel to Buhl for a rematch on Tuesday, Dec. 13.
