BILLINGS – Billings Senior’s boys basketball team found a little bit of its mojo just in time Thursday night.

Down 32-25 at half, the Broncs outscored Billings West 19-10 in the third quarter to take the lead and never trailed again in a 75-69 win inside Rimrock Auto Arena, snapping Senior’s five-game losing streak.

West jumped in front early thanks to 17 first-half points from Jesse Owens. Senior started the second half, though, on a quick 6-0 run to climb within 32-31, and carried the momentum through the rest of the game.

The win gives the Broncs a regular-season sweep of West. Senior is now 4-5 in the Eastern AA, half a game ahead of Billings Skyview. West falls to 3-6 with the loss.
