Noteworthy: After starting the season 15-0, the Saints travel to Butte in the midst of a two-game losing slide. … Carroll climbed to No. 2 in the nation thanks to its sterling start, but after a dismal shooting display against Rocky Mountain College on Tuesday, the offense needs to adjust. … Even with the low shooting marks in their last outing, the Saints bring the No. 1 field goal percentage (56 percent) and free-throw shooting percentage (83) in the nation. … Carroll’s 3-point shooting, which also nosedived on Tuesday, is currently ranked No. 4 in the nation. … The defense has largely been the same over the span, keeping the Saints in each game. … Montana Tech is looking for a step forward in Year 2 of Adam Hiatt’s tenure. … After a 1-17 campaign in conference last season, the Orediggers are looking for their first conference win this season. … Carroll swept the Orediggers a season ago, winning by an average of 16 points. … Orediggers guard Chris O’Neill was named second-team all-conference a season ago.
