University of Montana Women's Basketball Coach Robin Selvig and his Lady Griz held on down the stretch with tough defense and clutch free throws to beat the Lady Pilots of Portland 68-61 and give Selvig his long-anticipated 800th win.
For the first time since 2008, the Montana Lady Griz will be opening their season with two straight home games, giving head coach Robin Selvig the opportunity to win his 800th game in the friendly confines of Dahlberg Arena.
