The 2022-23 season will be Matt Luedke’s fourth as Butte High’s boys’ basketball head coach.

Luedke came to town with a great resume. He went from a late bloomer at Ronan to the 2000 Montana Gatorade Player of the Year. He lead Chotea to back-to-back undefeated Class B state championships.

The coach also started the UpTop travel basketball program. This year, that program is for boys and girls grades fourth through eighth. The program really does address a lot of the issues that have dogged travel sports over the years.

Cost is $300, and financial scholarships are available. Visit the team website to sign up.

This is the longest episode of the ButteCast because Luedke loves to talk, especially when the subject is basketball.
