BOZEMAN – The Montana State women’s basketball team is heading into its weekend matchup with Eastern Washington with a lot of momentum. On Monday, the Bobcats handed Northern Colorado its first loss in Big Sky Conference play this season, 79-66.

It was a team effort for Montana State as five players scored in double figures on the road in Greeley, Colorado. But even though they knocked off one of the best teams in the conference, the Cats aren’t getting ahead of themselves.

“I don’t know if it’s a statement win,” said MSU head coach Tricia Binford. “It’s just a big win to get a road win, period. And, for us, it was probably our biggest win of the season, for sure. But at the same time there’s a lot of season left, and we know that if you want to try to be in contention, you got to protect your home court, you got to win on the road. We didn’t protect our home court last week, but we are certainty going to do our best to protect it this week.”

Montana State is back at home against Eastern Washington on Saturday at 2 p.m.
