BOZEMAN – After a close overtime loss to the Grizzlies 71-76, the Bobcat men’s basketball team returned home on Jan. 21 to win three home games in a row. With the wins the Bobcats (6-4, 9-9) moved into third place in the Big Sky conference behind Montana (10-0, 14-4) and Weber State (8-2, 13-5).

On Jan. 21 the Cats beat Southern Utah (5-5, 7-12) 76-68. On Jan. 24 they handed Weber State their first conference loss 79-74 in an upset win, and on Jan. 26 the Cats prevailed over Idaho State (3-7, 4-15) in overtime 61-59.
