The Griz received a #13 seed in the much-anticipated selection show on Sunday afternoon at Paradise Falls. The crowd was electric in anticipation for the Montana to be announced. There were many moments when we thought it was our time, just to hear someone else’s name being announced. All the big analysts and projectionists didn’t have this one right, except for maybe the location of the game. The outcome? The Griz will play the #4 seed Wisconsin Badgers in Albuquerque, New Mexico (time to be announced) at 12:10 pm on Thursday, March 15.

The Griz enter the tournament with the longest winning streak in the NCAA with Kentucky losing early today. That is a great accomplishment and really shows what this team is about. A matchup against Wisconsin is a winnable game and our boys are ready to once again, make Griz Nation proud.

Here is a video of the reaction when hearing the seed!
