Its really hard to make the jump from Class C to D!. Thanks for giving it your best Caleb, we were all pulling for you.

That's a bummer. Understandable, but still a bummer.

Coach is trying to win with the best players on the floor. I’m sure Bellach understood that and just wanted to get to a program no matter what the level that he could compete. Happy for him and Coach Sprinkle. It’s a tough business!

No he was not redshirting this year. He saw court time in regular season games. This is a “zero” year for everybody thus everyone has an extra year of eligibility.

All the best Caleb. And, YES, you will always be a Bobcat.

Enjoyed watching you on the court for several years in HS and your time as a Bobcat! Best of luck Caleb.

This young man probably would be better suited and will play major minutes at a MSUB (or) solid Frontier program Carroll, MT Tech - where I understand his father was Hall of Fame player and played with Huse. You never know... This program is designed for JUCO, foreign players and Sprinkle adds some incoming freshman year over year.... The Patterson kid massively regressed and wonder what is next for him?

Good season run for Sprinkle.....

I wrote early when the zero-year was introduced that the ultimate beneficiaries would be D-2, NAIA, etc. A lot of you agreed. And it looks like that is exactly what is happening. That surplus of players from D-1 rosters are spilling down and ultimately the guys at the bottom of the food chain will be displaced.

This.

I have a nephew that grades out at D1 for baseball. He's going to community College next year.

Bellach should do excellent at Tech. Follow in his pops footsteps. That guy could flat out shoot the ball.

Good luck Caleb!
