BOZEMAN — For the second time in the 2019 season, the Montana State Bobcats and the Montana Grizzlies will hit the volleyball court to renew the Cat-Griz rivalry.
The last time these teams played was back on Sept. 24 in Missoula, where the Bobcats rolled to a three-set sweep of the Griz. They'll be looking to replicate those results Tuesday at Shroyer Gym in front of their home crowd. The Cats are coming off a big five-set win over Sacramento State this past weekend and will use that momentum and their home-crowd advantage to try to make it two in a row over the Griz.
“It’s the first time in my career that we’ve come to the turn of the conference above .500. We’re 6-4 right now," said MSU volleyball head coach Daniel Jones. "If we continue in that vein and build into it, ... It’s a critical match, there’s no doubt about it. If it was anyone else it would be just as critical in terms of the big scheme of things."
"We’re expecting heightened emotions, we’re expecting a sold-out gym," Jones added. "We’re expecting the ultimate kind of volleyball atmosphere at the collegiate level. I think it’s going to be an exciting night I can’t wait to get after it.”
