The Midland Roundtable has announced their Montana rosters for he annual Montana versus Wyoming All Star games that will be played on June 11 in Sheridan, Wyoming and June 12 at Rocky Mountain College in Billings. The men’s All star series dates back to 1997.
This years boy’s roster features one major star in Stanford bound Josh Huestis of CMR high school. The roster, though, is one of the deepest and most balanced, in quality talent, that the series has seen in a few years with 5-6 other players who got, or are getting, serious looks from some D-1 schools. Matt Miller was offered by a number of D-1 schools in basketball before signing with Boise State for football, while Blake Brumwell signed with Montana State last fall while. I have also heard that Overstreet, Pearson, Stulc, and Muller have or were given serious looks from D-1 clubs.
Scoring will not be a problem with this team with Overstreet, Muller, Stulc, Brumwell, Huestis and Pearson having put up 25 points or greater multiple times this past season. Additionally Brumwell, Pearson and Huestis each averaged double digits rebounds this past season, with Stulc and Miller not that far behind them. The Montana team will have great perimeter scorers, as well as strong physical inside presence. With this much quality balanced talent this team will be difficult to defend.
I can not argue terribly with the team roster, but if I had my druthers I might have added 6-8 Jake Owsley from Bozeman. I definitely think talent wise he is deserving, and by adding to the roster as a second center, it would have allowed Huestis to play exclusively at the power forward spot, where he is best suited. The ripple effect could also allow Stulc to play almost exclusively at the small forward spot and Matt Miller could then play some at the guard spot. Again though it should be a great team for the Montana boys.
