MISSOULA, Mont. -

Last year the Broncs boys struggled to win games, although they did play some of their best basketball late in the season. However, it wasn't enough to make it to the state tournament after dropping a postseason game to Whitefish in overtime.

In order to improve this season, the team says they are focused on sharing the ball and practicing solid team defense. On a team lacking in size their game plan will be to outrun teams and utilize their speed.

The squad says they have an athletic crew this year and have high expectations, but they don't want to get ahead of themselves.

"You know the kids put in a lot of time this summer, they played 35 games, tournament games, and with just how athletic and quick we are I think its going to be exciting basketball to watch," said head coach Michael Botsford.

"We want to obviously make an appearance in the state tournament and hopefully make a run later in to the postseason, but for right now we just take it a game at a time and get better every game," said senior guard Daniel Lebsock.

The Broncs start their basketball season Friday, Dec. 7.
