Cheyenne East senior Ky Buell and Sheridan junior Sam Lecholat were chosen recently as the Wyoming basketball Players of the Year by Maxpreps.com.

The website chose to honor a player in all 50 states and the District of Columbia now that the 2019-20 season has concluded, some of which were shortened by COVID-19, like Wyoming.

Here's what Maxpreps.com had to say about Buell:

Wyoming
Ky Buell, Sr., East (Cheyenne)
Averaged 22.5 points per game while leading East to a 23-3 record and Class 4A state championship.

Buell had an outstanding prep career and was an All-State selection all four years.
