With the regular season coming to an end, the Lowry boys concluded their regular season play with wins over White Pine and West Wendover.

Friday night, the Bucks hosted the White Pine Bobcats in front of a home crowd. Lowry dominated the majority of the game, leading the Bobcats 42-13 going into the half. The domination continued the rest of the game to secure the first win of the weekend 67-49.

Saturday, Lowry hosted the West Wendover Wolverines in hopes of avenging their loss to West Wendover earlier in the season. The Bucks jumped out to a quick lead over the Wolverines, leading the game 22-9 at the end of the first quarter. With Josh Watterson and Jesse Studebaker leading the Buckaroo scoring, Lowry managed to stay ahead the whole game and destroy the Wolverines 79-55.

Now the focus for the Bucks is turned towards the playoffs. Coming in at the number two spot in the Ruby Mountain league, Lowry has to take on the Dayton Dust Devils for the Northern Region playoffs. Dayton is currently sitting at the top of the Lahontan league with a league record of 8-4. The Bucks are preparing for a tough game and are not looking past the Dust Devils.

“We’re going to have a good week of practice and go hard the whole time,” said junior Tyler Brumm, “we’re just going to do what we do and get stuff done like usual.”

If the boys do beat out Dayton, they will be making their third trip to the state tournament in hopes of closing out the season with a state championship.
