Cats win 4th in a row

The Scottsbluff boys basketball team finished a sweep of a Cheyenne weekend Saturday with a 55-36 win at Cheyenne Central. That came a day after the Cats held off visiting Cheyenne East 71-68.

Saturday's outcome was never in doubt for Tony Siske's crew as they jumped out to an 18-9 lead after one quarter. They were up 32-19 at halftime.

Scottsbluff, playing without starters Eric Moreno and Taylor Winkler for a second straight night, were red hot from the field hitting 53-percent of their shots.

Coming off a 34-point night Friday, senior Michael Hadden came up big for Scottsbluff again, scoring 25-points. Senior Matt Klein added eight points, five assists and four steals for the Cats. Tyler Mickey also added eight points for Scottsbluff, who moved to 12-2 on the year.

They will put a four game win streak at Gering Saturday.
