Women’s Bobcat alumni game and other Secret Games


Last week if you listened to the radio or Internet broadcast of the Bobcat Women’s game against Easte… ah Montana State Billings, you heard the voice of the Women Bobcats Tyler Wiltgen mention the scrimmage the Bobcat’s were going to have against an Alumni team coming up. At the time he mentioned the time and place for this game, but that it was not an official game so he would not be covering it. For reason that will become obvious I am not going to mention the time and place, because you, the average public are not allowed to attend.

Earlier this week I got a little blurb from the Bozeman.

Due to NCAA rules, this game must be considered a “practice scrimmage” with outside competition. The rules surrounding a practice scrimmage say that there cannot be anyone in attendance that is not on the administration staff or there to help run the scrimmage. They are going to be locking the outside doors.


What is going on here is that the NCAA has new rules in place that limit the number of non-NCAA teams that its members can play, and Alumni games are out of the question … kind of. The NCAA will now allow scrimmages by member teams to play other teams if you call it a scrimmage and close it to the public. I believe, but I am not 100% sure about this, that coaches can not disseminate any thing specific about the scrimmage. For these reasons these games have been dubbed “The Secret Games”

So far this season the Lady Griz scrimmaged against their alumni (Déjà Vu) last Sunday, the Griz men scrimmaged against Washington State last Friday, and the Women Bobcat have a scrimmage coming up. As far as I know the Bobcat men did not have one of these secret Games.

Despite the secret nature of these games though information is creeping out about what has transpired in the games. For the Lady Griz I heard a couple accounts of what transpired with in a few days.

Lady Griz lost to Deja Vu by two in over time. Deja Vu had a lead of 14 points late in the second half. Baker did not play due to injury. Smith his 4 three pointers and along with De Boer played quite a bit for the freshman. Ena had a good second half, and Beck had a solid over all game. Stender played and scored very well also.

For the men’s game though here is some info from the Washington State point of view that you might find interesting. Link below:
