CHEYENNE – Ramping up the defensive pressure and flying into passing lanes helped No. 1-ranked Cheyenne Central turn a tight game into an 81-63 victory over third-ranked Sheridan on Friday night.

The Broncs (9-5) controlled play early, making five first-quarter 3-pointers and leading by as much as six. Central (13-1) took its first lead late in the opening frame when junior forward Lawson Lovering scored on a post move inside for a 15-14 advantage.
