The annual Wyoming versus Montana all-star basketball series returns to the court on Friday and Saturday. The first games will be at the Pronghorn Center at Gillette College. The series shifts to Lockwood High School in Billings, MT, on Saturday. The girls’ game starts at 5 p.m. followed by the boys’ game at 7 p.m., both days.


This year is the 48th for the boys’ series and the 27th for the annual girls’ series. They did not play in 2020. Montana swept the four games of the series in 2023. The Treasure State girls won 73-44 and 82-62. They have won 13 straight and lead the series 39-13. The Montana boys won 92-44 and 101-66 last year. They've won 22 in a row and lead the boys' series 67-27. Wyoming is looking to break the current 11-year losing streak.

For the second straight year, the two Wyoming head coaches are the two at Gillette College. That is Liz Lewis for the women and Shawn Neary for the men. WyoPreps spoke to both coaches this week to preview the games. We discussed some lessons they learned from last year, any adjustments in practice and approach to the games, identifying their strengths, what they expect from Montana, and more.
