Bobcat Women Rattled By T-Birds/Refs, Need to Bounce Back

Posted: Updated:

In Montana State's six point loss to Southern Utah on Thursday, the Bobcats almost controlled the entire game. The Thunderbirds gained their first lead with 3:30 minutes left in the 2nd Half. So what happened? The team used the 'R' word.

"I think we got a little bit rattled. We should have put the team away. I think we got a little rattled and we can't let that happen," Sophomore forward Jasmine Hommess

"I think we got a little rattled today. Challenged our mentality a little bit. Just coming off a loss to Idaho State and that I believe in them," Cats Head Coach Tricia Binford said.

Players play. Coaches coach. Referees ref. But the zebras blew the whistle a lot. 53 times. The Cats are not using that as an excuse.

"We knew it was going to be a physical game but the referees did their part and we're supposed to be able to play our game and understand that the game was physical and be smart in that aspect," Hommess says.

Next time they're in a close game, MSU says they're going to make things happen.

"I think we just need to keep our composure. keep that attack mentality. Instead of stepping back a little bit I feel like we stepped back a little bit and didn't have that aggressive mentality that we had at the start of the 2nd half," Hommess says.

Montana State's next opponent is that school located in Missoula. Coach Binford wants her team to play with an edge.

"It's a rivalry game. Last year we had the shorter turn around and it worked to our favor that year. I think it's just a matter of getting ready and performing."
