Six schools have agreed to form the Montana Tribal Colleges basketball league this fall.

Fort Belknap College in Harlem, Blackfeet Community College in Browning, Stone Child College in Box Elder and Fort Peck Community College in Poplar will be adding men’s and women’s basketball programs.

Those schools will join squads from Salish-Kootenai College in Pablo and Little Big Horn College in Crow Agency.

The league will tip off Nov. 6 on the campus of Stone Child College in Rocky Boy for a two-day, round-robin tournament.

Gerald Stiffarm of Fort Belknap College says representatives from the schools will be meeting to finalize league rules and regulations.
