Bison and Lady Bison Hoops Ready for Conference

Posted: Updated:
GREAT FALLS -

Both the Great Falls High basketball teams will begin their conference schedule Thursday night with the boys playing host to Butte while the girls will travel south to play the Bulldogs.

The boys team is 4-2 in their non conference schedule having lost to the defending state champions Hellgate and runner up Capital. Thursday's conference opener is scheduled for 7:30pm at the R.W. "Bill" Swarthout Fieldhouse.

The Bison are young but talented and say that they are ready to go as they will be looking to get off to a good start and build some momentum early on in conference play.

"Our team's been playing well together. I think we've been getting our chemistry as the years gone along. We all love playing the game and getting out there and competing so as we come in to conference we just need to tighten up our defense a bit and we'll be fine," said Junior Matt Wyman.

Coach Howard added, "to win the first conference is the goal. You want to win every game you play so we'll be ready to go and I'm sure Butte will be ready to go and it will be an interesting night."

Meanwhile, the Lady Bison are 5-1 on their season and with the boys at home, the girls will travel to Butte for their conference opener. Coach Dart says that the Bulldogs will present a challenge with their unique style of play and tempo but his team is ready to go. The girls say that they are happy with their effort thus far in the season but want to make their mark in conference and need to do so with a win in a tough environment tomorrow night.

"Butte is always a hard place to win but always getting that first conference win is a good start and puts you on the right path," said senior Taylor Kumm.

Coach Dart added, "right now we just want to keep winning. Butte is a tough place to play on the road but getting a big win down there prior to Crosstown next week will be real important for us momentum wise."

Highlights from both games can be seen Thursday on KFBB as well as on our website at kfbb.com/sports.
