BOZEMAN — Montana State's women's basketball team held its annual media day on Monday and head coach Tricia Binford spoke highly of her team's balance on both sides of the court.
The Bobcats return a plethora of experience but also a fresh crop of talented newcomers that fans can be excited about. Binford and senior guard Oliana Squires are both expecting a lot from this year's team that possesses a threat both down low and on the perimeter, as well as an active defense that will challenge teams in all areas of the court. The foundation is set for a successful 2019-20 campaign.
“Love our experience but we also have a mixture of newcomers that I think is going to make us really well balanced," said Binford. "Strong post play and our guard experience I think is going to help us, but we’re defensive-minded right now.”
“We bring a lot to the table of the defensive end I’m excited about that. I expect a lot out of us this year," said Squires. "I expect a lot of the newcomers to play in their roles and I think it’ll be a fun season, I’m excited.”
The Bobcats start their season with an exhibition game against Northwest Nazarene on Nov. 4.
