CASPER, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - The Kelly Walsh boys basketball team has started the season 4-0, including a 3-0 opening weekend in Casper. They didn’t qualify for the state tournament last year for the first time since Randy Roden crossed town and took over the Trojans for the 2011-12 season.

Roden said before the season started that this team would have to improve each week in order to get back into the state tournament.

“I think this team has a high ceiling,” said Roden. “But I think they can’t become complacent and think that things are going to work out at the end without improving every day.”

The Trojans will have to make their way through the 4A Northeast Conference, which features Thunder Basin, Campbell County and Sheridan.

Roden said being in such a tough conference means that they’ll have to bring it each week. That’s the “good part” about it, according to Roden.

Trojan Davis Crilly, who had a big opening weekend at the Oil City Tip-off, said this team needs to get better each day by pushing one another at practice.

“We can’t let each other get off on easy stuff,” said Crilly. “The little stuff that we have to work on in here, ya know, just easy little mistakes we always gotta fix. Nothing can go over our heads. Just be down to earth.”

At the Flaming Gorge Classic, the Trojans will be back in action on Friday morning against Evanston at Green River High School.
