Montana Grizzlies basketball notes:
By the numbers, this is a solid team. The Grizzlies have a deep bench, senior leadership, rank fourth in the nation in assists, 56 th in rebound margin; shoot 50% from the floor, 39% from long range and 71% from the charity stripe. So why is this a 15 seed that we have heard very little about all year? The schedule didn’t turn out to be that great and a few close road losses in conference slipped Montana down to second place in the Big Sky. The Grizzlies want to run and if they bump into a slow tempo team, they could be in trouble establishing a consistent half-court offense. I can’t pick a 15 over a two, but Montana could at least keep it close against Gonzaga if the long ball is falling.
