Billings West’s long memory helps top-ranked Golden Bears win big over Billings Senior

BILLINGS — Golden Bears, apparently, don’t forget. To put it more accurately, Billings West girls basketball coach Charlie Johnson wouldn’t let his team forget.

The last time the Bears visited Billings Senior’s gym in late February of last year, the Broncs put an end to West’s unbeaten streak of 11 games to start the season with a one-point win.

So, in preparation for the programs’ first intra-city matchup of the season on Friday night at Senior, Johnson showed his team clips of that Broncs’ win and played the Senior fight song during practices throughout the week.
