BILLINGS – With the end of the regular season in sight, Rocky Mountain College’s basketball teams will face ranked Providence teams on Feb. 14 at Fortin Education Center.
Both of Rocky’s basketball teams will look to stop a three game losing streak. Neither of the teams have won a game since defeating MSU-Northern on Feb. 1.
Rocky’s 24th-ranked women will need to find an answer for Providence’s Emilee Maldonado. Maldonado scored 31 points for No. 23 Providence in Rocky’s 64-60 loss to the Argos on Feb. 2.
Rocky will look to Justyn Juhl’s defensive presence as she currently leads the Frontier Conference in blocks per game at 1.10. Kloie Thatcher’s 107 assists rank her second in the conference, behind only Maldonado, in assists.
Rocky’s men look to avenge a 86-74 loss to the No. 22 ranked Argos on Feb. 2. Five Argos scored double digits in first last meeting.
Jared Samuelson still leads the Frontier Conference in points scored (510) and total rebounds (188). Rebounds have been a strength for the Battlin’ Bears this season, leading the Frontier Conference in total rebound margin at 10.5.
Thursday’s women tip off at 5:30 p.m. and will be followed by the men’s game at 7:30 p.m.
