It will be tough to beat them in Missoula, but I really believe we have a legit shot at pulling off the upset, and I wouldn't have said that a week ago.
Yeah, I've kinda started to get conned into that idea as well. But realistically-what are the odds of MSU winning 4 road games in a row (with stops at Ogden and Missoula included) and the griz losing 3 games in a row? My guess-Belo and Kirby will be in foul trouble within the first five minutes, and they'll outscore us by 20 from the free throw line. Unless we can hit a ton of threes, which our team is just not very good at doing, I don't see us having much of chance up there.

Gambler's fallacy. The odds of winning 4 road games in a row are certainly slim, BEFORE those games are played. The odds of winning the fourth road game are not diminished because the three previous games were wins.


...for today we raise, the BLUE and GOLD to wave victorious!... GO CATS GO!

Maybe Choate needs to coach the basketball team too. I like Sprinkle, but good Lord how do you give up 10 3 pointers in the 1st half and expect to win? Do we not teach defense? This is pathetic.

Haven't watched many games this year? Our defense has been pretty stellar (until tonight)

The thing that baffles me is this feels waaaaay to predictable. Like why?

It’s like they are only calling ticky tack fouls. Hammered around the rim? Let em play. Touched the defender 30 feet from the hoop? Foul.

Yep-especially if it's a Bobcat at the rim. Anderson fouled Belo about three times on that last one-finally a call on the rebound.

Belo gets killed again-no call. Sprinkle has to do a better job of working the refs. Belo gets no respect in this league.

To bad the griz stats were not working. At least everytime I went there it said it was non operable.

Tough game. Happy with how MSU competed. Frey is incredible. Congrats to UM on their second point in this year's Brawl Series!

The Griz spread the court really well and moved the ball really well. The shots were pretty long and our D was not getting to them. They were also incredibly hot. It happens. We changed that in the second half. I think they said 6 or 7 different players made 3s in the first half. Lots more shooters.

Please tell me that, after you calmed down, you came back and laughed at yourself for posting this.
