What to Know
The Montana Grizzlies have enjoyed the comforts of home their last two games, but now they must head out on the road. Montana and the Idaho State Bengals will face off in a Big Sky battle at 9 p.m. ET Thursday at Reed Gym. Bragging rights belong to the Grizzlies for now since they're up 12-1 across their past 13 matchups.
Montana escaped with a win on Saturday against the Northern Arizona Lumberjacks by the margin of a single free throw, 67-66.
Meanwhile, Idaho State didn't have too much breathing room in their matchup with Northern Arizona on Monday, but they still walked away with a 75-70 win.
Barring any buzzer beaters, Montana is expected to win a tight contest. They have failed bettors playing the spread in their past two games, so buyers beware.
Their wins bumped the Grizzlies to 12-12 and the Bengals to 9-15. We'll see which team can carry over their success and which team inevitably falls when Montana and Idaho State clash.
