Grizzly Men Hold Off Pesky Great Falls Squad
Inside Dahlberg Arena, the University of Montana men's basketball team was pushed to the brink by NAIA Great Falls.
When the dust had settled, though, the Griz escaped with a 60-59 win over the Argonauts.
UGF trailed by 16 points with 15 minutes to play, but quickly caught fire to storm back. A buzzer-beater fell short, though, and Montana had a one-point victory.
Montana's starting backcourt of Will Cherry and Kareem Jamar each finished with double figures in the scoring column. Jamar had 14, while Cherry chipped in 11.
UM (1-1) will take to the floor once again on Thursday night when they host the Idaho Vandals at 7:00.
