CHEYENNE, Wyo. — One of the state’s largest high school basketball tournaments has been shortened slightly due to wintry conditions that have been wreaking havoc on Wyoming this week.

The Taco John’s Invite in Cheyenne — a 14-team boys and girls basketball event originally scheduled to be held over three days mostly at four locations across the city this week — has been condensed to two days due to wintry conditions and numerous road closures that have impacted southeastern Wyoming this week. Both Casper high schools (Natrona County and Kelly Walsh) are slated to play in the invite.

Thankfully for teams and fans, each team participating will still play three games, though the event is now limited to just varsity and junior varsity. Venues include the East High School main and auxiliary gyms, the South High School main and auxiliary gyms, the Central High School main gym, and the Storey Gym on 2811 House Ave. in Cheyenne. Laramie will also host a separate home game as part of the event Saturday.

Here is the updated schedule for the event. Note that only varsity games are listed below, but the entire schedule is available here.
