Scobey Boys’ Goal Is Simple…  Outright Class C State Title Scobey Boys’ Goal Is Simple…  Outright Class C State Title

This Is It!

Six consecutive District 3C conference and tournament championships, five straight East C Divisional Tournament titles, five-ina-row State C Tournament appearances placing third twice, fourth once and a costate title last season, an active 51-game winning streak dating back to its final three games at the 2019 State C... what more could the Scobey High School boys’ basketball program want?

The Spartans (23-0, 1606-727, 69.8-31.6) faced the Powder River County (Broadus) Hawks (2nd, South Division, 18-5, 1277-1065, 55.5-46.3) in Wednesday’s 1 p.m. tourney opener.

The Manhattan Christian Eagles (1st West, 23-1, 1599-905, 66.6-37.7) battled the Belt Huskies (2nd North, 20-2, 1227-753, 55.7-34.2) at 3:30 p.m.

The first round resumes today (Thursday, March 11) when the Bridger Scouts (1st South, 20-0, 1217-727, 60.8-36.3) take on the Twin Bridges Falcons (2nd, West, 18-2, 1132-800, 56.6-40.0) at 9 a.m. followed by the Fort Benton Longhorns (1st North, 19-1, 1205-693, 60.2-34.6) facing the Froid-Lake Redhawks (2nd East, 21-3, 1430-849, 59.5-35.3) at 11 a.m.

From there Scobey maintained the lead between six (20-14) and 12 (36-24, 38-26) points right before halftime, where the Spartans enjoyed a 10-point advantage.
