Former P.C star helps Montana State to win

Dvaldo Mbunga, a 2006 graduate of Peninsula College and former Pirate men's basketball player, led the Montana State Bobcats men's basketball team to a nonconference win against the Colorado Buffaloes on Nov. 19.

Mbunga, the 6-foot 7-inch center, scored 13 points and had eight rebounds, two assists and three blocked shots in the 85-82 road victory.

Mbunga is in his senior year at the Bozeman University. He has been a constant in the starting rotation as a center and was considered for the newcomer of the year last season in the Big Sky Conference.
