Binford Wraps it Up

With the announcement of Beata Bak’s signing Montana States Tricia Binford, wrapped up her spring recruiting 2007. Binford will be adding 7 players to go along with 7 returning players for next season. It will also leave one scholarship open so it is possible that she could sign another player over the summer, if she chose to. That will be a lot of new players coming on board that she will have to evaluate and work into the system. The returnees are very experienced and talented, plus bring a lot of leadership qualities with them so that should help quite a bit next fall. The other thing that should really be an asset for this team is the flexibility of the players and Binford’s system in the system that should allow Binford to get her best players on the court. It is clear, though, that at least four of these players will need to be ready to contribute right away.

Update: Helena Capital’s Matt Miller

Found this on Rivals.com. Found it interesting

It’s not very often that two brothers from different universities are assigned as the official recruiting coaches of one of the nation’s most versatile players, but when it comes to Class of 2010 athlete Matt Miller, this is the case.

Miller, out of Helena (MT) Helena Capital, has offers to play college football from over 11 universities and two of the schools that have been showing him the most interest thus far are Colorado State and Arizona State.

Kelsey Hildal to Walk-on with the Griz

The Lady Griz have received a commitment from Kalispell’s 5-4 Kelsey Hildal. Hildal is dynamo on the floor from the point guard position, averaging about 19 points a game. Her high game this season was a 39 point out burst against Missoula Big Sky. Hildal is the first Montana player this year to commit to the Griz and should be a great walk-on pick up for the Griz. With a little seasoning … i.e. a redshirt year and maybe a development year she should be able to give the Griz a nice change of pace option off the bench.

Binford signs a JC MVP

Beata Bak from Miles City Community College has committed to play for the Lady Cats next year. Bak a power forward who is listed at any where from 6-0 to 6-2 (I believe 6-0 is closer to the truth) averaged 17 points 9 rebounds 2 steals a game, while shooting 48% from the field, 33% from three point and 71% from the line. Bak was named MonDak Women’s Basketball Conference MVP. She had five conference games where she finished with double-doubles, including a 30 point and 20 rebound outing against Bismarck State.  Bak, who originally hails from Poland, Led MCCC to a 21-7 overall record and 11-3 in the Mon/Dak Conference record this season.

Bobcat recruit Alpha N’Diaye

The Bobcats are recruiting a JC center from Ohlone Junior College in California named Alpha N’Diaye. N’Diaye is a 6-9 center who averaged 10 points, 8 rebound and 3 blocks a game while shooting 53% from the field and 58%from the line. N’Diaye is originally from Africa and has only been playing organized basketball for the past 3-4 years. He is a very athletic player, and with a 7-1 wing span would fit the bill for the new key word in college basketball as “plays long”. He earned second team all Northern Division in the California JC ranks, and is ranked by numerous web sites as a top California D-1 recruit. Ohlone JC finished the season with a 25-9 record and was ranked in the California JC top 20 most of the season.

Questions on Bobcat Recruit Dominique O’Connor

I have fielded a handful of questions the last few months on Bobcat recruit Dominique O’Connor from Westchester high school in Los Angeles. My response as of late, has been, that I do not thing we have much of a chance and are probably not recruiting him any more. It sounds like I am only half right.

Bobcats recruit Shawn Grant

The Bobcat’s have been recruiting Shawn Grant of St. Francis high school in Mountain View California since last spring, and he still appears to be on their short list this spring. Grant’s recruiting has been a rather curious affair. The 6-4 Grant had a nice junior season, but really stepped it up his senior year averaging 16 points, 6 rebounds, 3 assist, 2 steals while shooting 40% from 3 point land. He is a pretty athletic player featuring 36 inch vertical and good quicks. He also has an excellent student. He was both all leaguing first team as well as All-Mercury News Boys Basketball first team. Here is what the Mercury News had to say about him:
