Coyotes get point guard eligible

The Cal State San Bernardino men’s basketball team is on its way to Seattle for a pair of games against in-region foes. The good news is that point guard Devin Montgomery is on the plane too.

Montgomery missed the team’s regular season opener against Alaska-Fairbanks Sunday because he had not yet been cleared by the NCAA. Montgomery played in a summer league that wasn’t sanctioned by the NCAA so he basically had to have his amateurism reinstated.

That had been in the works for some time but Cal State finally got the go-ahead just ibn time for Montgomery to make the flight.

The Coyotes will play Western Washington Friday and host Seattle Pacific on Saturday. Both are traditionally top contenders in the Great Northwest Athletic Conference. The games are important because one of the main criteria for postseason play is record against in-region foes.

Now when they finally get Brandon Brown in the mix . . .
