Huh. I figured any piece coming from Montana would read more like "wait, how are we supposed to score on them? also, how do we stop them from scoring? the end?" But noooo...

How do you see it going? I see our 5 out offense taking your two immobile "bigs" completely out of the game on one side and our premier perimeter defender, who completely shut down three top B1G guards in 4 days, smothering your only hope for offense. This is not a pretty matchup for Montana.  It may stay close while Michigan shakes off the rust but this game doesnt strike me as an upset in the making or even a particularly close game.

Good luck. Id be rooting for you against anyone else.

Montana will win because:

1) they play defense - could be heavily debated considering they have given up 89 points to both Northern Colorado and Portland State

2) they have uncanny resilience bc they came back from double-digit deficits a couple times in the big sky tournament - you were also down double-digits a couple times in the big sky tournament, you know, to big sky teams

3) they are unselfish - i learned to share when I was three

4) the big ten lays eggs in the tournament - compared to all those big sky runs
