Cats Men Looking for Continuity in 2015

Posted: Updated:
BOZEMAN - At 3-9 on the season  first year head coach Brian Fish is searching for continuity for the Montana State Bobcats. One goal at the top of coach's agenda: figuring out a set player rotation. In their most recent contest, a ten point loss to Wyoming, all 12 Bobcats saw playing time.

"I'm still 12 games into it searching, to be honest with you. Marcus has established that he's going to be our point guard. We're in and out on who is going to establish as our other four guys. Until you do that, usually you're record will be 3-9 when you're still searching as of January 1 of which way you're going to go."

A bright spot this season has been the play of senior point guard Marcus Colbert. Colbert leads the team in scoring averaging over 12 points per game. But he plays with a pass first mind-set, leading the team in assists.

"I don't think going into a game that I have to go out and score 15. I kind of try to do what I normally do. If I feel like I can score, than I shoot it. I still feel like I'm trying to get everybody involved first."

Next up for the Cats is the conference season. North Dakota comes to town on the first of the year. And coach Fish hopes to see his team improve in all areas of shooting.

"We're just not shooting the ball and making shots, we're just hoping they go in. That's par of who we've got to be, is to make some shots. I thought we would be little more prepared. I'm a little disappointed that I'm still searching. We've got a long way to go. The schedule gives us a break there. We start the first two at home, so we'll have four days off, start back on the 28th and go."

Despite the tough start the team is looking forward and says they're excited for the future.

"You don't want to be 3-9, that's for sure. I think we've shown some good things and we've also shown ourselves what we need to work on. Coach Fish is definitely going to have us ready. We're going to follow him, and he's going to take us where we need to go."
