BOZEMAN — The Montana State Bobcats men’s basketball team returns home Tuesday after a four-game road trip highlighted by Harald Frey’s buzzer beater to take down UNC Greensboro. The Bobcats went 3-1, which included going undefeated in the Spartan Classic in Greensboro.

Tuesday the 4-2 Bobcats welcome in Colorado Christian, a team head coach Danny Sprinkle praised for their discipline and unique offensive style. The Cougars will be the first of the three teams over the next two weeks MSU will play at home. Sprinkle wants his team to build off the chemistry it had when it was on the road and bring it into Tuesday's home game.

“I mean, it is harder to focus at home because you’re not cooped up in a hotel room and you’re not traveling together. You can’t have team meals and stuff like that, which I thought was awesome for our team," Sprinkle said. "We needed it to get away and be together for seven straight days. You learn a lot being on the road, and now it’s obviously you're back at home, but it’s going to be a huge home stand. We have to take one of their goals, which is to go undefeated at home."

The Bobcats and Cougars tip off at 7 p.m. Tuesday.
