NCAA Tournament Preview: Montana Grizzlies

Brutus-the-bear

The Basics

  • Record: 25-6 (15-1 in the Big Sky)
  • Best Wins: Long Beach State, Weber State
  • Worst Losses: North Dakota
  • Admirable Losses: Colorado State, Nevada

Statistically Speaking (national ranking)

  • The good: 0.61 opponent assist/turnover ratio (4th); 43.9 A/FGM (12th) 46.5 TSP (45th)
  • The bad: 28.1 OR % (283rd); 33 RPG (246th)
  • The interesting: Eight games against the RPI top 150. That's not a lot. The Grizzlies did not schedule tough.
What to Expect

After preventing Damian Lilliard to play in the NCAA Tournament, the Grizzlies may not be very well liked by the hardcore college basketball fan. They're decent though, and instead of Lillard, perhaps Will Cherry could serve as a nice consolation. The Big Sky defensive player of the year also averaged a nice 16 points a game, and a pretty nifty all around player and could cause problems for a two-seed.
