Rock Springs Rolls over Lady Wolverines

    Rock Springs junior forward Emma Asay put on a shooting clinic at Wolverine Gym Thursday evening scoring 28 points from just about every position on the floor to lead the Lady Tigers to a 62-27 West 4-A win over the Lady Wolverines.

    Asay has an unconventional jack-knife style jump shot but it was deadly effective as she hit four 3-point shots along with eight closer range baskets.

    Senior night at Riverton saw the Lady Wolverines fall behind 18-4 at the end of the opening period as Rock Springs’ pressure defense didn’t allow Riverton to get the ball past half-court on many early possessions.

    After the initial onslaught, Riverton played much better in the second period, outscoring the visitors by a pair.

    Riverton sophomore Taytum Tyra had a great game, scoring in double-figures to lead the Lady Wolverines with 10 points. The 6-1 Tyra rebounded well and blocked three shots during the contest.

    In the second half, Rock Springs rolled on a 16-2 run to end any hopes of a Riverton comeback with Tyra’s post-up basket the only points in the third period.


    Rock Springs came close to the 40-point running clock standard with a 36-point lead but Riverton was able to hold them off in the final minutes of the game.
