BOZEMAN, Mont. -- Although Montana State Men's Basketball wasn't able to secure their win against Northern Colorado, the Lady Cats did. The Big Sky Conference league-leading Lady Bears were the top-ranked team going into Monday's contest.
The Bears jumped out fast on MSU, and going into halftime, the Bobcats trailed. But the trail wouldn't have been for long, as something changed with the team's mentality in the second half.
Head coach Tricia Binford explains why this win was so important to not only her team, but to Bobcat athletes from the past.
"You're really early in, but to get a road win against a top caliber team is pretty big. We got texts from even former Bobcats who didn't have opportunities
to win in Greeley."
"Just staying in the hunt and trying to keep your kids moving in the right direction is it. I thought it was big for us to get to a point where we just start hitting some shots."
The Lady Bobcats now move to 4-2 in conference play, and are now ranked number five after knocking off UNC, 79-66.
They will face Eastern Washington on Saturday in Worthington Arena.
