Summer league is underway for members of the Greybull High School basketball program.

The team led by Coach Jim Prather went 6-1 at the Montana State University-Billings Tournament held May 24-26, losing only to Lustre Christian in the championship game.  The Buffs won their pool, going 3-0, then racked up three straight wins in the single-elimination tournament to advance to the championship game.

Sixteen teams were in Greybull’s bracket.

The Buffs used a roster of 14 players and all of them played in every game.

The roster included Payton Gonzalez, Logan Jensen, Kason Clutter, Calder Forcella, Colten Flitner, Wyatt Nielson, Keegan Jenness, Ryan Sylvester, Zack Zeller, Treston Tracy, Dawson Forcella, Cade Dooley, Clancy Stoffers, and Dante Sylvester.
