At halftime of the Big Sky championship game on Saturday, it looked like it might be Eastern Washington representing the conference in the NCAA Tournament, not Montana. Eastern Washington led by 11 at half. The Eagles had already beaten Montana in the regular season matchup. But Montana owned the second half, winning 82-65 to earn a spot in the Big Dance.
There are no hard feelings from Eastern Washington head coach Shantay Legans, who was kind enough to provide MLive with a scouting report on Montana, the team Michigan will face on Thursday in the first round of the Tournament.
