Nice article on MSU-BB player Semansky

The Great Falls tribune has a nice article on Ex-Highwood and current Montana State freshman Rachel Semansky. While in truth the article features Semansky, it also discusses the current Bobcat Women’s team and it young season. I have a short taste of the article below but you should really follow the link below and read the entire article on the Great Tribune site.

Ex-Highwood star Semansky in starting lineup for MSU women

Not many basketball players go directly from Montana’s Class C prep ranks to a starting role for an NCAA Div. I program, and Rachel Semansky certainly didn’t expect to be one of them.

But that’s where the former Highwood star finds herself this weekend — the starting low post player for Montana State’s 5-1 squad.

The 6-foot Semansky wasn’t sure what position she would play for the Bobcats, and she wasn’t sure whether coach Tricia Binford would use her at all in her rookie season. But a combination of hard work on Semansky’s part and an injury to starting center Jamie Thornton thrust Semansky into the lineup last week against Winthrop. Semansky will be in the starting five again Friday night when MSU faces Gonzaga at Brick Breeden Fieldhouse.

Montana / Wyoming All Star Game – Box Scores Round 2

Mon-wyoHere are the Box scores for the second round of games in the Montana Wyoming All Star Basketball series. These games were played Saturday in Billings. Both games were more tightly contested that the previous games played in Sheridan Wyoming, with the Montana boys losing an over time game, and the Montana girls needing a 34 point effort from Jos Tinkle to pull out a 7 point victory over Wyoming. It is amazing in this series how little the home court seems matter. It seems the “visiting team” always seems to play better than the home team.

Montana / Wyoming All Star Game – Box Scores Round 1

ballhoop

Here are the Box scores for the first round of games in the Montana Wyoming All Star Basketball series played in Sheridan Wyoming. As expected the girls team dominated Wyoming 82-83. The boy’s team has a surprisingly (at least by me) time against their Wyoming counter parts. The second part of the series will continue when they meet again tonight in Billings Montana.

Here is a report from the Billings Gazette and another from the Wyoming Tribune

Montana / Wyoming All Star Game – Girls

tinkle

The 2010 Montana All-Star series kicks-off tonight in Sheridan. I have made it to, quite a few of the games held in Billings over the past 10 or so years but it looks like I am going to have to sit this years out, for family issues in Missoula. Still the series is usually a great event, and I think this year will be no exception.

While I know most people tend to look at the boy’s game as the main event, the real star of this year games has to be the Girls game. While the Montana boy’s team really lacks star power, the Montana girls team is over flowing with star power, and you have to look no further than to Stanford bound Jocelyn Tinkle to find the biggest star of them all. Even with out Tinkle this team might rank as one of the best Montana teams ever fielded, but with her I can not think team that we have fielded with this much talent.

Binford Wraps it Up

With the announcement of Beata Bak’s signing Montana States Tricia Binford, wrapped up her spring recruiting 2007. Binford will be adding 7 players to go along with 7 returning players for next season. It will also leave one scholarship open so it is possible that she could sign another player over the summer, if she chose to. That will be a lot of new players coming on board that she will have to evaluate and work into the system. The returnees are very experienced and talented, plus bring a lot of leadership qualities with them so that should help quite a bit next fall. The other thing that should really be an asset for this team is the flexibility of the players and Binford’s system in the system that should allow Binford to get her best players on the court. It is clear, though, that at least four of these players will need to be ready to contribute right away.

Binford Announces the signing of Semansky

Tricia Binford officially announced the signing of Highwood’s Rachel Semansky to a letter of intent. See the following article

The interesting thing about the article was at the of the press release it says that: “

Binford also indicated more signings could happen next week”

As in plural signies. Semansky represents the 6th player or new comer to to the 2009-10 team. Carrie Ojeda from Mount Tacoma high school in Washington who is rumoured (by me) to be one one of the fall signies would be the 7th, and possibly an 8th recruit also on board. That could be interesting. That also means, if we do sign another player beyond Ojeda that one of the returnie players may not be coming back. On paper it appears that we will have 8 players returning including redshirt Jannette Jackson, right now 6 players signed, maybe 2 more players yet to sign (including Ojeda) and only 15 scholarships allowed by the NCAA.
