March is once again upon us, and that means state tournament time for basketball teams. Both Bison boys and girls teams are expected to make noise in the AA tournament. The girls, after their wins over Billings West and Billings Skyview this past weekend, secured the number two seed in the Eastern AA Conference and have an automatic bid to the dance two weeks from Thursday in Bozeman.
The Bison boys have a slightly tougher road to state, as they are currently the four seed in the Eastern AA and must have a playoff game against fifth seeded Billings Senior this Thursday night. The Bison beat the Broncs two weeks ago in Great Falls 68-60.
Luckily for the boys, the playoff game will be at home, Swarthout field house. The Bison boys have a home record of 9-1 during the regular season and just a 3-7 record away from the “Old Stomping Grounds.” The winner of Friday’s game will be the East’s four seed for next week’s state tournament.
Tip-off time for Thursday’s game will be 7:30 PM and due the fact that it is a MHSA playoff game, students do need to pay for admission to the game.
