Montana-Wyoming All-Star: Montana Girl’s



The Midland Roundtable has announced their Montana rosters for the 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.

This year version of the Montana Girls all-star roster does not feature a major star like Jos Tinkle, but I think it will be a long time before we see a basketball player, for either boy’s or women’s team for quite a while. Jordan Sullivan of Sidney, has been playing in Tinkle’s shadow the past few years, and is clearly the star of this team. Sullivan has the capability of playing guard, forward or center for this team but will most likely play inside for Montana. Sullivan who signed with U of Montana is a complete player, who is a walking double double but can also handle the ball and pass out of the double (triple) team.

The Montana team also feature three other players who signed with the University of Montana in guard Lexi Nelson of Butte, guard Kellie Cole of Bozeman and center Carly Selvig of Glendive. Nelson is a spark plug guard who can sore points in bunches, Cole is a very balanced player who gets it done on both offense and defense side of the ball. Carly Selvig is known more as a defensive stopper prior to her senior year but has shown a new found offensive game this year. Unfortunately Anaconda’s scoring machine Torry Hill blew out he knee this past February and will not be available this June.

The biggest omission on both the boy’s and girl’s selection was the omission of 6-1 Jackie Mee of Libby. I realize many of the people in Billings who selected the team are not all that aware of the fact Libby is still part of Montana. Mee averaged 20 point, 10 rebounds and 2 blocks a game for Libby. Mee is also one of the better three shooting players regardless of position having shot almost 40% from beyond the arc. When you pick an all star team generally you pick the top 4-6 players and fill in the holes with complimentary players. Mee is one of those top 4-6 players in the state. Further confusing me is the fact that this team lacks depth at the big players. I find it pretty sad that the Midland Roundtable over looked a player of this caliber, this is their biggest miss in the past 5-10 years.

    If you look at some of the selections on the girls side the last couple years, there’s been a quite a few question marks. There were kids who signed to play at D1 and D2 schools for basketball who were passed over for kids at the same position who weren’t recruited at all in any sport or ended up signing late in the Frontier Conference. I don’t know about Mee as the biggest ommision in 10 years, but these guys have missed a lot of players in the last 5 years on the girls’ side.

    I agree with you that Jackie Mee is one of the top senior players in the state and should have made the Montana/Wyoming team. She is versital and can post up or shoot the 3. Her numbers are impressive. She is a hard worker and is as coachable kid as they come. Not much press coming out of Libby to help her out. The same could be said of the Great Falls Tribune All State Selections. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder but stats don’t lie.
