Oredigger men back on hardwood

A week after a disappointing home loss to Walla Walla University, the Montana Tech men’s basketball team is back in action today.

Montana Tech (7-4) takes on the University of Mobile (Ala.) at 3 p.m. at the HPER Complex in the team’s final tune up before opening Frontier Conference play Saturday at Lewis-Clark State College.

Sophomore Adam Greger leads the Orediggers into action, averaging 19.5 points per game, which ranks him No. 2 in scoring in the Frontier Conference. Tanner Neumann, Daniel Simon, Brandon Rydberg and Bryan Bock will also start for the Orediggers.

Chris Richardson, a 6-foot-2 junior guard, averages 16.3 points per game to lead Mobile (5-4).

The game will be the first meeting between the two schools in any athletic event.
