Sixth-year University of Montana head basketball coach Wayne Tinkle’s 2011-12 team will have several exciting non-league home games this season, and then begin their Big Sky Conference slate in late December.

Montana hosts the likes of Idaho and Long Beach State (Nov. 17th & 26th), as well as the University of San Francisco, Nevada, and Utah Valley State (Dec. 1st, 10th, and 22nd).

The Griz also have formidable road contests at Colorado State (Nov. 11), North Dakota (Nov. 23), Oregon State (Dec. 1), and Portland (Dec. 17).

“When you look at the success that almost all of the teams on our non-league schedule had last season, and consider how many starters they have coming back, then you can see why we feel like we have a formidable schedule,” said Tinkle, who has a five-year record of 91-64 at his alma mater.  “I think this it is one of the most challenging and alluring non-league home schedules that we’ve had in quite some time.

“A lot of these teams were on our schedule last season, and once again we are expecting knock down, drag out, difficult contests against all of them,” Tinkle said.
