A quartet of Brits have helped Montana State University to their first Big Sky regular season title in two decades this week.
Players Amin Adamu, Jubrile Belo, and Great Osobor, along with assistant coach Chris Haslam, helped make history when the Big Sky-leading Bobcats beat second place Southern Utah 69-53 to clinch the league’s regular season championship, MSU’s first since 2001-02.
They followed it up with a 75-69 win over Sacramento State on Thursday night to seal the title outright.
