BOZEMAN -The Montana State men’s basketball team has finally found its footing in the Big Sky Conference. The Bobcats have won their last three games in conference play. The biggest change is that more players are stepping up for MSU.
In the past two games, their leading scorer, Tyler Hall, has only averaged nine points, while teammates like Devin Kirby and Harald Frey have begun to lead the offensive charge. Head coach Brian Fish says more players getting involved is driving their success.
“I think we’ve had some individuals that have made some personal adjustments that resulted in some better team success,” said Fish. “I think (Devin Kirby) got stymied there for a couple of games and I think he’s bounced back. Harry (Frey) has obviously played at a high level again. I think Keljin (Blevins) has, as well, and it’s all been within a team concept. It’s helped us be better and I think we’ve been better this week defensively.”
Montana State’s defensive has buckled down in the past week. Over their last three games, the Bobcats have been holding opponents to an average of 68 points per game.
