Rocky signs West High’s Betcher 

BILLINGS, Mont. – February 11, 2015 – Rocky Mountain College men’s head basketball coach Bill Dreikosen has announced the signing of Billings West standout Dan Betcher to a letter of intent.

Betcher, a starting 6-foot-8 forward for the Golden Bears, informed Dreikosen of his decision Tuesday evening. He currently averages 13.5 points, 6.1 rebounds and 1.3 blocks per contest. Betcher has played on the varsity at West all four years of his high school career.

Dreikosen is very excited that Betcher chose to become a Battlin’ Bear. “Most important, Danny is a very good student,” Dreikosen said. “His size, length and athleticism will make our team much more versatile,” Dreikosen said.

“Danny is a very important piece to the future of our program,” he added.

For Betcher, signing to play at Rocky was a simple decision. “It is a perfect fit for me,” Betcher said. “Coach Dreikosen is a winner and I love winning.”

“There is something special about playing in the town you grew up in,” he added.
