The Big Sky Conference announced its players of the week Monday. Our congrats to Lady Griz senior Katie Baker. Katie had a great week as Montana took sole possession of first place in the conference. In the two wins she scored a total of 37 points, including 22 on Saturday against Eastern Washington (with her dad in attendance celebrating his birthday). Katie also had 15 rebounds and a number of steals during the two big wins. She shares the week's honor with a player from Sacramento State. Great kid! Congratulalions, Katie!

In a related basketball story: The University of Montana men's team will travel all the way to Davidson, North Carolina to play the Davidson Wildcats in the annual Bracketbuster matchup. Bet they're thrilled about that road trip in the heart of the conference season, huh?  DB
