Yuma boys in unknown territory

The Yuma High School boys basketball team is in an undisclosed location as it prepares for league play to begin later this week.

The Indians fell 3-0 in the young season with a 57-38 loss to the Chase County Longhorns on Tuesday night in Imperial, Nebraska.
Next, the Lower Platte Activities Association game begins on Friday at home against Holyoke, followed by a trip to Julesburg to face Sedgwick County on Saturday.
Granted, Chase County played their 19th game of the season compared to Yuma’s third game, but the Longhorns started Tuesday with a three-game loss, most recently with a double-digit loss to Hershey.
Yuma took the lead 7-2, but in the end the Longhorns scored their eighth straight win against the tribe.
Chase County regrouped at the end of the first quarter, leading at 14-11. Yuma stayed between 23-22 at halftime.
The Indians briefly took the lead in the third game, but the Longhorns were 37:33 ahead by the end of the quarter. The home team eventually built a 10-point lead of 50:40, 2 minutes and 30 seconds ahead. The tribe kept fighting, getting to six in six seconds but never fully closing the void.
Clay Robinson had 15 points and three rebounds, Javier Gamboa 11 points and seven rebounds, Cade Morton 10 points, Beau Tate seven points and six rebounds, Forest Rutledge three points, and Javier Duran two points and two rebounds.
