While we've had the head woman on the program several times, it was our first chance to visit with one of her assistants.

Scott Gurnsey and I were joined by University of Montana Lady Griz assistant coach Mike Petrino. Mike is in his second year with the program, and we learned just how deep his Montana roots run. Mike is an accomplished recruiter and strategist, and we were impressed with what a great interview he is and how much he brings to Lady Griz basketball. We think you Lady Griz fans will really enjoy it and we hope you give it a listen.
