CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Tuesday was a bit of a disappointing outing for the Burns basketball program when they went up against Nebraska foe Bridgeport.

The Lady Broncs played the first of the two games, and looked outmatched the whole way against their undefeated opponent. They never really had a chance to be in the game, as Bridgeport jumped out to a quick double digit lead that continued to build. That resulted in a 78-35 defeat for Burns, dropping their record to 5-8 on the season.

At the start of the boys game, it looked like the team had some juice; they jumped out to a 10 point first quarter lead. However, Bridgeport came storming back to leave the Broncs trailing by one at the end of the quarter. From then on, it was all Bulldogs. They went on to secure an 80-56 victory, and Burns exited the contest at 4-9 this year.

Both teams will be back in action Saturday against Shoshoni.
