The 10th-ranked Casper College men’s basketball team remained undefeated at home with a 68-45 victory over Eastern Wyoming College on Wednesday.

The Thunderbirds (25-2, 10-1 Region IX North) were up 36-21 at the half and led by as many as 29 points (58-29) in the second half.

Isaac Bonton (22), Amin Adamu (16) and Broc Finstuen (15) all scored in double figures for the T-Birds, while Wilfried Likayi pitched in nine points to go along with 10 rebounds.

This marks the second time under Dan Russell in which Casper College has reached the 25-win plateau (25-9 in 2015-16) and just the third time since the 1996-97 season.

Casper College improved to 15-0 at Swede Erickson Thunderbird Gym this season and has outscored its opponents by 28.1 points per game at home.

The T-Birds have three regular-season games remaining: at Northwest College on Saturday, at Gillette College on Feb. 20, and home against No. 6 Sheridan College on Feb. 23.
