Argo Men Ranked for First Time, Credit Experience and Hot Home Start

Posted: Updated:

The University of Great Falls men's basketball team is enjoying a first... being ranked for the first time in the NAIA Top 25.

The Argos are ranked 24th in the most recent poll, thanks in larger part to a three game winning streak that has lifted them into a tie for first place in the Frontier Conference Standings.

Head Coach Steve Silsby credits a couple different factors to his teams 4-2 start in league. First, is the hot start at home. UGF is 3-0 in conference, and 9-0 on the season at the McLaughlin Center. After starting league play with a 1-2 record, the Argos have been able to right the ship at home with wins over Carroll, Westminster and Dickinson State.

Second, is the Argos experience. Silsby has nine upperclassmen on the roster, and says their ability to keep a level head in difficult situations on the court, and their trust in one another is the reason UGF is playing so well.

"I just think the biggest thing is we don't get too high, we don't get too low," Silsby says. "We've been through the grind of a conference season 2 or 3 years now together. The guys know what to expect and I think it's just they trust in each other and believe in each other."

The first test for the Argos as a ranked team will be in Havre on Friday at MSU-Northern. Tip-off in Havre is at 8:00pm. The Women play at 6:00pm.
