BOZEMAN — Montana State men's basketball coach Brian Fish has named Kenya Crandell as an assistant.

Crandell worked in basketball operations at Oregon for the past two years, where Fish was an assistant for the past four seasons. Crandell also has been an assistant at Southern Utah, Sacramento State, Northern Colorado and Nebraska-Omaha.

Fish says he's always respected Crandell's work ethic, knowledge of the game and ability to put the athlete first. He says Crandell's past experience at schools that are in the Big Sky Conference means he knows the talent and type of player it takes to compete in the league.

Crandell was a point guard who still holds the career assists record at Nebraska-Kearney, where he began his coaching career as a graduate assistant.

Fish doesn't expect to complete his initial Bobcat coaching staff for another couple of weeks.
