Bobcat Women land Jackie Elliot

Jackie Elliott (left) guards Carly Selvig (right)

I have been hearing rumbling from multiple sources over the past few weeks that Billing Central 5-11 Jackie Elliott had committed to the Tricia Binford’s Bobcat basketball program. It now looks like that she indeed has.

Elliott is a 5-11 player who played most positions on the court for Billing Central, but is projected to play the wing (shooting guard and small forward) in college. Last season she averaged 14 points and 9 rebounds a game, while being named First Team Class A All State team.

MSU WBB Commit: Kayla Dewit Update

Last month the Montana State Bobcat Women’s Basketball team got their first recruiting commit for the 2011 recruiting season when Columbia Falls 6-2 post Kayla Dewit told Tricia Binford’s program. The Bobcats had been recruiting Dewit for quite some time and was one of their top targets in the 2011 class, and her commitment got the Bobcat’s recruiting class off to a great start

Dewit averaged 19 points and 11 rebounds last season for Columbia Falls and was named First Team Class A All State. As a sophomore she averaged 14 points and 10 rebounds and was a second team all state selection. For the last three season Kayla has played along side her older sister 6-0 Kelsey Dewitt who has signed to play for Montana Tech next season. Kelsey was also a double digit scorer and rebounder for Columbia Falls.

Kayla Dewit will play the Power forward and center spot in college, and is expected to be a very good rebounder at the D-1 level. She is a very athletic 6-2 girl who can run the court and gets off her feet really well, which makes her the prototypical “Big” that Binford covets in her system. Binford prefers athletic and mobile big girls over the larger and lumbering post players, and is willing to give up a little height for speed.

Kalli Durham Update

As I reported earlier today and has been hitting the Web this afternoon, Miles City’s Kalli Durham has Committed to play for the Bobcat Women’s team starting the 2011-12 season. Kalli is the latest in a long line of Durhams to where the Blue and Gold. Her Grandfather played for the Bobcat, Her Uncle Mick also played in the late 1970’s, and went on to coach then went on to coach the Bobcat’s for most of the 90’s and 00’s. Her cousin Casey (Mick’s son) also played for the Bobcats a few years ago. Am I missing anyone. I am told that Kalli very much wanted to follow in the family tradition and wear the blue and gold, and last night she got the opportunity.

Kalli Durham is a 5-8 guard but will be looking to break the family tradition the Durham point guards as she is more true shooting guard. She has started every game for Miles City since her freshman year averaging 10 points a game as freshman, 17 points as a sophomore, and 18 points a game this past year in her junior campaign. I believe by the end of last season she became Miles City all time scorer, and will look to build on that next season.

I have not had much of an opportunity to see her play personally so I got in touch with three friends of mine who are very familiar with he play and they all pretty much agreed with each other. My Favorite quote was her AAU coach Mark Albert:

“My best comparison is Rachel Semanski at the guard spot… … a bit more like Sonya Rogers.”

***** Breaking News *****

I have it on a very reliable, and very happy source that Miles City high school girls basketball player Kalli Durham has committed to play for the Montana State Bobcats Women’s Basketball program. Kalli had an outstanding week of AAU ball in Portland this past week and the MSU coaches offered her at their first opportunity. I will have more on Durham and her commitment later today.
