It turned out to be a good week for the Billings Senior girls basketball team after all.
The Billings Senior and Billings Skyview girls basketball teams will meet for a third time this season Friday with a State AA tournament appearance at stake.
GREAT FALLS -- Billings Skyview fell to the No. 6 seed in the Eastern AA on Tuesday afternoon after losing to Great Falls 37-30 in girls basketball.
The girls basketball teams from Billings Central and Billings Skyview had other things on their minds besides their interclass matchup Thursday night.
Pre-game warm-ups gave little inclination as to what was about to unfold at the Skyview High gym Friday night.
The latest batch of Eastern AA girls basketball leaders have been compiled, and there are some performances that stood out to me. Among them:
Gregg Dart is a believer. But that doesn’t mean his team’s current winning streak hasn’t caught him a little off guard.
BOZEMAN -- Bozeman had only five players score points, but it was enough to hold off Billings Skyview 47-44 on Friday night in Eastern AA girls basketball.
Hailey Copinga led three players in double figures with 13 points and Skyview outlasted Hardin 46-42 in a non-conference girls basketball game Tuesday at the Falcons' gym.
Sammy McGree and Maria Michelotti each scored 11 points as Butte defeated Billings Skyview 55-47 in Eastern AA girls basketball Saturday.
It’s not the style of girls basketball most Billings Senior observers are used to seeing. There’s not much to find fault with, though, as the Broncs’ up-tempo approach led to another high-scoring victory Tuesday night.

Billings West wanted to keep the ball out of the post Saturday night. Erin Schreibeis made sure of it.
It was a long, tough climb for Billings Skyview to get back into Friday night’s non-conference, interstate girls basketball game against Sheridan, Wyo.
Morgan Webster scored 14 points and Billings Skyview earned a rare victory over Eastern AA rival Bozeman 41-36 on Friday at the Falcons' gym.
