Pine Bluffs native Kammie Ragsdale and Kaia Herrera each had 13 points for Casper while Natalia Otkhmezuri had 11. The T-Birds are a very good shooting team and hit 52% of their shots on Wednesday night. Plus, the Casper defense forced 26 turnovers en route to their 19th win in 19 games this season.
