Lady Griz Learn Their Fate
About an hour ago, the University of Montana women’s basketball team found out where and who they will play in the opening round of the NCAA Tournament.
The location? Spokane, Washington, just 200 miles west of Missoula. The opponent? Pac-10 runner-up UCLA.
After watching the announcement live at Paradise Falls, I caught up with head coach Robin Selvig. Here’s what he had to say.
I also flagged down the three seniors on this years’ squad; Sarah Ena, Stephanie Stender and Jessa Loman Linford. Ena discussed playing so close to home, Stender talked about not having to travel very far, and Linford mentioned the Grizzlies’ tough schedule this year, among other things.
Montana plays UCLA on Saturday at 4:30 pm Mountain Time.
