BILLINGS — Saturday's State C Championship was all about unfinished business for the Scobey Spartans.

The Spartans advanced to the championship last year, which was ultimately canceled because of the COVID-19 outbreak. They worked their way back to the title game this year and made quick work of Twin Bridges, winning 64-27 on Saturday to claim the Class C boys basketball state championship.

"The big thing was last year. We didn't get to finish it. We didn't get to experience this," Scobey head coach Jason Wolfe explained. "And that's what these guys have been talking about all year, is to finish it, get this final buzzer, and experience that."

Scobey's 75% field goal shooting effort in the second quarter gave the Spartans a 31-point lead at the half, which dug the Falcons into a hole that they were unable to crawl out of.

"We thought our pressure would be to our advantage (Saturday)," Wolfe added. "We knew if we could get out early that our pressure might have some effect on them."

The Spartans recorded eight different scorers in Saturday's championship win, which was headlined by Jayce Tande, who connected on five 3-pointers for a team-high 15 points. Parker Cromwell followed with 14 points.

"I had to come through for my team," Tande said. "I shot terrible all weekend, and it finally worked out for me."

Twin Bridges' Charlie Kruer led the Falcons with 10 points.
