Cut Bank sophomore Robert Reagan slips past teammate Jackson Black on his way to the hoop during the Wolves intrasquad scrimmage Saturday morning in the Willie DeGroot Gymnasium.

The Cut Bank Wolves boys basketball team has begun practicing and getting ready for their 2021 season. Coach Josh Larson begins his third season as the Wolves’ head coach and is excited to get things going. “We are really excited to finally be able to practice and to start getting ready for our first game right after the New Year,” Larson said.

Youth will be the theme this year as Larson looks to replace six seniors off of last year’s squad. Leading the way for the Wolves this year will be juniors Dayne Barbie and Dawson Vasboe. 

“Dayne and Dawson are really the only players we bring back with a lot of varsity experience from a year ago. We’ve been really impressed with this group of young players and look forward to a fun year,” stated Larson.

In addition to Barbie and Vasboe, Larson will look to fellow juniors Will Sewell, Eddie Dewert and Tayron Burdeau for leadership. Larson has a very deep and talented group of sophomores looking to get into the fray as well. Quinn Rides At The Doore, Robert Reagan, Damien Burke, Peyton St. Goddard, Jackson Black, Chevy Burdeau, and Preston Bird will all make a case for varsity minutes. Freshman Tate Monroe has looked really good in practice and will definitely be in the mix, said Larson.

“I am really happy with this group of players we have. We are very young, but have a chance to do some special things this season,” concluded Larson.

The Wolves season opener is on Saturday, Jan. 2 at home against Harlem.
