Let’s just say that here in Montana we play a pretty good brand of basketball!  Over the weekend both the Montana girls and boys got a sweep from the best players in the state of Wyoming.  Here are some notes from the boys games.

  • Wyoming was big with 6’8″ Cody Baumstarck along with 6’11” Kelby Kramer who will play for the Griz, but Montana’s big guys were even better!
  • 6’6″ Brendan Howard of Great Falls High along with 6’6″ Jaxen Hashley of Glacier were both outstanding!
  • Howard had games of 21 and 25!  His 46 points places him in a tie for 13th on the all time all-star scoring list!
  • Brendan Howard the only “AA” basketball player to score 2,000 points in a career was also named this Network’s Mr. Basketball!
  • Plus for the first time we had four Division one football players on the Montana basketball roster!  Twins Brayden and Bryson Deming from Billings West will play for the Griz!  While Jaxen Hashley and Troy Anderson will football at Montana State.
  • Head Coach Steve Keller of Montana Western is now a perfect 12-0 as the head coach for team Montana!
  • The Montana boys lead in the series 57-27!
