The Snow College men’s basketball team earned a dominant win against Colorado Northwestern Community College on Saturday afternoon in Rangely, Co. This win would snap the Badger’s four game losing streak and was their first win of 2023.

The Badgers entered Saturday’s game coming off a tough road loss against Utah State University East Thursday night. Snow College struggled offensively in that game and lost 76-55. The Badgers shot just 14.3% from 3-point range, but they shot an impressive 14-20 from the free throw line, but it wouldn’t be enough to get them the win in Price.

Snow College was looking to end its losing streak in Saturday’s game. The Badgers came out ready to play and began to build a lead against the Spartans as the first half progressed. Guardian of the Snow College Chase Potter would contribute 10 points in the first half on 4-6 shooting. He was assisted by Hayden Franson who added eight points, going 2-4 from 3-point range.

The Spartans struggled offensively in the first half. They shot just 25.8% from the field and had 11 turnovers. The Badgers extended their lead to 20 points and closed out the first half with a 39-19 lead.

Although CNCC’s shooting would improve to 38.2%, the Badger offense was too much to handle. Snow College had just two turnovers in the second half, helping them finish the game dominating.
