Final 2016 Road Trip: Day Two
Game day in Bozeman, as UNC tries to end a three-game road losing streak when facing Montana State tonight.
The Bears will be facing one of the top freshman in the country tonight, as Tyler Hall comes into the game among the leading scorers in the Big Sky and the player who has scored 500 points in his Montana State career at the fastest pace. He’s done that without shooting a lot of free throws, interestingly. The game has been a perimeter one for him (91 3pointers made), so the MSU coaching staff is trying to get him inside more. We’ll likely see the offense run through him more than we did in January in Greeley, though what that means for senior guard Marcus Colbert’s role is unclear.
UNC will have 10 players on the active roster tonight, with Dallas Anglin no longer on the team. This isn’t a good place to be when you’ve got 3 games in 6 days in front of you, and would need to play 3 consecutive days next week to reach the Big Sky Championship.
We’ll get the broadcast going at 6:35pm tonight! See you then!
