(Miles City, MT) Miles Community College head men’s basketball coach Chase Tait is proud to announce that Montenia Nelson has received all-region honors.

Nelson was a big key for the success of the banged up Pioneers this season who were plagued by injuries the entire season. Nelson missed just two games for the Pioneers this season and averaged 32 minutes in his 26 starts on the season.
