BOZEMAN — All eyes in the Big Sky Conference are on the Montana State women's basketball team as the heart of the conference schedule seeps in.
The Bobcats sit atop as the lone undefeated team in the conference as they gear up for a home contest with Idaho on Thursday night. Their hot start to conference play on top of being the preseason conference favorites have put a big target on Tricia Binford's squad. However, the added pressure is something they knew would come with the territory and feel they've played enough tough opponents to prepare them for the next phase of the season.
“I know every conference game every team is going to give us their best game, and we just can't be satisfied with our wins," says MSU senior guard Oliana Squires. "We have to continue to grow and never be satisfied.”
“I think we put ourselves in that situation in the preseason schedule. That’s why we did that, we wanted to be battle-tested," adds MSU head coach Tricia Binford. "We wanted to play against the best so we can get everybody's best. We know we’re going to get everyone’s best.”
MSU and Idaho tip off from Brick Breeden Fieldhouse Thursday night at 7 p.m. MST.
