BOZEMAN — It’s been a long time since Stu Starner has stalked the sidelines of Worthington Arena, but for an hour or so this fall he will be back.

So will a number of former Bobcats men’s basketball players, when Montana State hosts an Alumni Game on Sept. 20.

The Alumni Weekend coincides with Homecoming for Montana State University and the Bobcat football team, and first-year MSU coach Brian Fish said the response has been tremendous.

“I’ve talked to a number of players, and whether they can attend this year or not they are fired up,” Fish said. “It’s a way for our program to re-connect with its great tradition, and to connect players who contributed so much to our program.”

Fish indicated that he has over 25 commitments, but the names of players planning to attend won’t be released until early September.

Starner, who helped lead the Bobcats to one Big Sky regular season and one Big Sky tournament championship as head coach from 1983-90, will coach one of the teams.

Former players looking for more information or interested in attending should contact Mandy Patriarche at
