A Cause Greater Than Support for Basketball Teams
Tonight's high school basketball doubleheader at Laramie High School is about so much more than the games. Both LHS basketball teams are hoping you can join them for a great cause.
Laramie High School has teamed up with Denver Bronco's Zane Beadles' charity, Brent's House, which sponsors a clean home for patients going through chemotherapy and need a clean space to live.
Laramie Plainsmen head coach Chuck Kern says, "It's really a big school event... They've gotten really involved and really supportive, in putting out the word about coming out to the game and bringing your cleaning supplies for this great event. That is something this program is all about... not just playing basketball on the court, but it's serving the community, as well."
How can you help? You can bring cleaning supplies to donate to Brent's House at the games tonight. If you donate, you will be entered into a raffle for prizes to be given away during tonight's doubleheader.
If you can't make tonight's games, you can still donate cleaning supplies through March 7 at Laramie High School, as well as many locations on the University of Wyoming campus. They include the Union, Coe Library, the Business building, the Classroom building, Engineering building, the Fine Arts building, Half Acre gym and the Arena-Auditorium.
As for the basketball action tonight, Laramie takes on Cheyenne South in a girls'-boys' doubleheader. South swept Laramie in Cheyenne three weeks ago, so both LHS teams are seeking some revenge.
The Laramie Lady Plainsmen enters with an 8-12 overall record and is 1-6 in the 4A East Conference. South is also 1-6 in league play and 5-15 this season.
The Laramie Plainsmen are still searching for that elusive first conference win this season. They come in at 0-7 in the 4A East and 3-17 overall. South brings a 6-14 record to town, and the Bison are 2-5 in the conference.
The girls' game will start at 5:45 p.m. The boys game will tip-off around 7:15 p.m.
