The Montana State women's basketball team goes into the Big Sky Conference tournament today led by the 2019-20 Coach of the Year Tricia Binford.

Coach Binford was named as the conference's top coach on Monday after leading the Bobcats to 19-1 league record, the most wins and second-highest winning percentage in conference history. The Bobcats finished the season overall 23-6.

This is the second time Binford has been named the Big Sky's Coach of the Year. She received the award after the 2015-16 season, the year the Bobcats won the Big Sky tournament and made it to the first round of the NCAA Tournament.

Binford and the Bobcats will play Northern Colorado today at noon to begin their Big Sky Conference Tournament play.
