Big Sky Conference dropped four matches from men’s and women’s basketball schedules | Big Sky Sports Conference | Instant News

“I think this is a good and wise step to reduce the cost of the road sides of men and women,” Haslam said. “You know you will miss the trip and free that weekend in December is good.”

Montana and Montana State are both likely to lose expensive trips. Geographical proximity will be one of the criteria that will help determine the six opposing teams that will play twice and which one they will play once.

Idaho, Idaho State, Weber State and Eastern Washington all seem to be the team that Grizzlies and Bobcats will face twice.

“Entering this year we are ready to adapt to changes. “Although we are disappointed because we don’t have the complete Big Sky schedule, I understand as a conference that we need to consider ways to save money for this year’s budget,” Montana State women’s basketball coach Tricia Binford said in a university release. ” I am grateful that the Big Sky Tournament has not been affected and as a team we will focus on what we can control and take advantage of every opportunity to compete. “

Big Sky’s composite schedule hasn’t been released. Haslam said that both Montana’s male head coach Travis DeCuire and female coach while Michael Petrino were still working on their non-conference whiteboard.

Among classes that end on Thanksgiving next fall instead of running into December and now an extra-open weekend, the hope for many schools is that they will try to schedule additional home games or find cash games that are guaranteed to fill slots.
