Purcell Marian — from the preparation to the effort and everything in between — defended for 32 minutes about as well as a team can last night in their 58-40 win over Wyoming.
The win moved Purcell to 10-2, extending their winning streak to double-digits. We’ll have more on them later, but, as a teaser, they came into the game ranked no. 3 in our Division III Power Rankings and even that might be too low.
Meanwhile, this was Wyoming’s first loss of the season in ten games. Evan Prater dealt with foul trouble early. Joey Edmonds, too, battled a tweaked ankle after a missed layup attempt in the third quarter. It wasn’t their night, but Purcell deserves the credit for their troubles.
