This past weekend the Regis University Men's Basketball team kicked off their season with a trip to Wyoming. The team fell short losing 75-65, but some may consider it a win. The University of Wyoming, a division 1 program, came out swinging but the Rangers were able to keep up for most of the game.
Senior Dexter Sienko led the Rangers with 15 points and 7 rebounds followed by Senior Ty Mcgee with 13 points and 4 rebounds.
With the team only having 3 incoming Freshman, watch out for the Rangers veterans to shine this season.
Coming up this weekend, Regis Athletics will be hosting the RMAC/Heartland challenge in the field house. The Rangers will be playing against St. Mary’s University (TX) on Saturday at 1:30 followed by a 1:30 tipoff on Sunday against Lubbock Christian University. With both competitors being very similar in talent to the Rangers, these games won't be ones to miss. Colorado School of mines will also be competing in the tournament, but the Rangers will not be playing them.
This weekend will be the first test for the Rangers to see if they can capitalize on the 7 straight home games that they will begin the season with. The Rangers won't have to travel again until December 9th so hopefully, the extra rest and home game atmosphere will bring the Rangers success.
Come on out and support your fellow Rangers at their home opener this Saturday!
