This is the second part of my two part series looking at the Montana State men’s basketball program players. In this post I am looking at the front court players that included the power forward (4) and the center (5)
Front Court (power forward and center)
The front court will be very untested this year aside from All-Conference player Bobby Howard there is not a lot of experience there. It will be manned by returnees but the back up will all be new comers.
Bobby Howard 6-7 (PF)
The All-Conference player is going to counted on to play major minutes this coming season and be a big point and rebounding producer for the Bobcats. Howard significantly improved his shooting percentages last season which has always been a problem the previous two year, and he need to continue to be a very effective player for the Bobcats. Reports are that Bobby physically looks the best he has ever looked and playing even better. For the Bobcats to be successful they will need a very productive senior campaign from Howard.
Cody Anderson 6-10 (C)
As the only returning experienced big man on the Bobcat roster Anderson will be looked on to anchor the center position. I have heard that Anderson has slimmed down some since last year, but I do not expect him to be a 30-35 minutes a game player. He will need a solid back up. A good shooter, there is hope that he can become a solid scoring option for the Bobcats. He also has improved his rebounding.
