Do you hear the squeaks?


If you are a true believer in basketball, and you let the room you are in get real quiet, and you listen real carefully, you will hear the distinct sound of basketball shoes squeaking on a newly finished basketball court. That should tell you that the coming of the college basketball season is just around the corner.

One week for today D-1 basketball teams across the nation will be able start full schedule practices. Since September 15th teams have been allowed two one hour practices a week and 6 hours of individual work outs with coaches. Starting though on October 17th at 7:00 PM teams will be allowed to have regularly scheduled work outs and the battles for playing time should begin. I am already hearing about some great battles already shaking out for playing time and starting roles, for the Bobcat Men’s and Women’s as well as the Griz and lady Griz teams. There seems to be quite a few new players as well as returning letter man, who are pushing last year’s starters for their roles. Expect some surprises.

The Big Sky conference has released their 2009-2010 prospectuses and you can find a wealth of information their about the nine Big Sky Conference teams. I have the links below to the Men’s and Women’s prospectuses, but be aware they are to large PDF files, and could bog down your browser while they are down loading them. You might want to consider right clicking on the links and choosing the “Save target as..” option to down load the file on to your computer before viewing them.

    Thanks Mslacat for doing your blog and keeping us updated on Griz hoops. Can you share some more detail on which newcomer Griz are battling for starting roles or serious playing time? I remember Tinkle challenged each of the returners to make some off season improvements. I hope Wayne makes a timely determination on which players stepped up to the off season challenge.
    It sure seemed like Wayne waited forever to figure out that AJ was the real deal last year.
