The Gillette College Pronghorn basketball teams wanted to drive to Powell, Wyo. on Tuesday to be well-rested for Wednesday's games against Northwest College. Closed road and unsafe conditions forced the squads to drive the four-hour trek the day of the games.

Gillette College was led by Renard Suggs. He made 29 points in the game, with 24 of them beyond the arc. Suggs only missed three out of his 11 triple attempts. Renard's brother, Rickey, had a stellar night off the bench as well. Rickey finished with 16 points, the third highest contribution on the scoreboard for the Pronghorns.
Gillette College also took advantage of being fouled in the game. The team made 64.7 percent of its free throws, scoring 33 points from the line.
The women trailed the entire contest against the Lady Trappers. Kiela Garner had a nice game for the Pronghorns, as she finished with 26 points.
