Pine Bluffs native returns as redshirt freshman for Pokes

Laramie, Wyo. - Hunter Thompson, a former Pine Bluffs basketball star, is returning to the Cowboys basketball program as a redshirt freshman.

Last year, Thompson injured his ankle before the season started and had to get surgery. The Pine Bluffs native returns to the squad healthy and in line with Wyoming's work ethic.

"I'm getting used to the speed and getting used to coach [Allen] Edwards. I didn't really play [last year] but I was still able to learn his terminology and learn our coaching staff and how they want us to play, where we need to be, stuff like that," said Thompson.
