Wyoming Indian High School's team colors are red, white and blue. But at Monday's basketball practice, there was a lot of purple and gold on the court. The Chiefs and Lady Chiefs - who swept last year's 2A boys and girls state championships - wore the LA Lakers' team colors to honor the late NBA legend Kobe Bryant. Wyoming Public Radio's Savannah Maher stopped by practice to talk with the players and their coaches about what Bryant meant to them.
This piece features the voices of girl's basketball head coach Aleta Moss, boy's basketball head coach Craig Ferris, Mary Harris, Halle Robinson, Jaden Ferris, Elizabeth Valdez, Jerrad Friday, Warlance Black Shawl, Vidale C'Bearing and Terrance Yellowplume.
