BOZEMAN — Montana State is holding another camp this week — this time it’s for basketball.

The skills camp put on by the Bobcat men featured kids from kindergarten to eighth grade. Roughly 100 kids were in attendance, and the team utilized all three courts in the Brick Breeden Fieldhouse. Coach Fish’s players led the kids through pickup games and drills, but while the camp is fun, Fish emphasized how important it is getting the youth out.

“Well I think its huge. We benefit greatly from it because our players get to interact with the young people throughout the state that come to camp,” he said. “On the other side, they get to benefit and meet our team, our players, and connect with them and hopefully grow a bond with them and show up for games and support us and become fans. Key thing is, they just love coming into the gym playing, and a lot of them like to be shown how to do that, and we certainly enjoy being in the gym with them.”
