Noteworthy: The Saints are coming off a 60-53 victory on the road against Lewis-Clark State where senior guard Brittney Johnson scored a team-high 16 points, which included four 3-pointers, while sophomore Christine Denny chipped in seven points and a career-high 12 rebounds. ... Hannah Dean, a senior from Gardiner, is leading the Saints with 14.1 points and 6.7 rebounds per game, but after that the offense has been pretty balanced with three players averaging just under nine points per game. ... Montana Western defeated Rocky Mountain at home on Thursday 73-63 where King scored 29 points, dished out four assists and grabbed six rebounds. ... It's early in the conference season, but the Bulldogs are just one game back of first-place Carroll in the Frontier Conference standings. Could this be a preview of the conference title game later this year?
