Basketball Season Starts


This week marks the official start the NCAA basketballs season. The Montana State men’s program has one exhibition game to finish this Monday, but after that it is all regular season game that actually count.

The games do not really get away underway until Friday but then Griz men, Lady Griz and Bobcat Women all open the season. The Grizzly men open their season with their revamped home tourney which will be played round robin style with all four teams playing against each other in three days. This is most likely the most interesting team to watch this week to see how they emerge after the tourney.

This weeks Calendar


11/9/09 – Bobcat Men host Valley City State (exhibition)
The bobcats finish up their preseason exhibition slate against VCS which enters the game with a 2-2 record against D-2 and NAIA competition. The Bobcats should win.


11/13/2009 – Lady Grizzly at Colorado State
The Lady Griz beat CSU last year in Missoula 68-53. Look for CSU wanting a little revenge at their place.
11/13/2009 – Bobcat Women at Cal-State Bakersfield
Cal-State Bakersfield is entering its third year at the D-1 level.
11/13/2009 – Grizzly Men host North Dakota
The Griz first game in their tourney, is against a team entering its first year of full D-1 play.


11/14/2009 – Grizzly Men host Boise State
The second game of their tourney should be a challenge for the Griz team.
11/14/2009 – Bobcat Men at Nevada
Nevada won their match up last year in Bozeman and should be a very tough challenge for the Bobcats


11/15/2009 – Grizzly Men host Loyola Marymount
The third game in their tourney, by the end of the game we should have a good feeling where the Griz will stand early in the season.
11/15/2009 – Lady Griz at Wyoming
This is actually turning into a rather nice rivalry game every year. I think Wyoming smells blood.
11/15/2009 – Bobcat Women at Pacific
Pacific is coming off an embarrassing loss to 96-84 to D-2 Humboldt State on their home court. Chances perhaps for an early season road win.
