Business as usual for Montana all-stars despite schedule shift in Wyoming series

BILLINGS — University of Providence coach Steve Keller is a perfect 14-0 in the Midland Roundtable’s Montana-Wyoming All-Star basketball series. There’s a new wrinkle for Keller this year, however, as the games will be played Friday night in Billings and Saturday in Sheridan, after Wyoming requested Saturday nights every other year. Another change? The games will be played at Alterowitz Gym on the campus of MSU Billings after apparent water damage to Rocky Mountain College’s floor.

Despite the shift in schedule, it’s business as usual for Keller and the Montana boys.

“We haven’t done it. In the seven years I’ve done it we always have played (in Billings) on Saturday night. We just have got to show up and play in both places, it doesn’t really matter whether it’s (in Billings) or (in Sheridan),” Keller said. “Bottom line is they’ve got to play together. They’re the 10 best players. They’re all the best players on their high school team, now they’ve got to play together. And then they also have got to try to guard, which nobody likes to do in an all-star game.”

The games are slated to begin at 5:30 each night with the girls playing first. The boys roster for the 2019 Montana-Wyoming All-Star basketball series can be found here. The girls roster can be found here.
