Montana Men Staring Adversity Right in the Face

Posted: Updated:

Players on the University of Montana men's basketball team might have sore necks right about now. They aren't used to looking up at so many teams in the Big Sky Conference standings.

After losing at Eastern Washington, and Portland State last weekend, the Griz are 1-3 in conference play and tied for second to last place. The three conference losses are one more than Montana's total from the last two season's combined.

So, Wayne Tinkle's team is in uncharted territory. But, his senior leader Kareem Jamar thinks this weekends slate of home games is a chance for the Griz to finally overcome some adversity and get back on solid footing.

"I hadn't ever lost this much, maybe two games my freshman year," Jamar says. "I woke up after the Portland State Loss, and I was like, I'm a firm believe in everything happens for a reason. I think I've had a lot of success here in the last three years and I'm not going to say it's easy, but a lot of things game to us fairly easily. But now is the year we have to go through even more adversity. We have a good chance this week against a good two teams to make some spread in the conference."

The Griz host North Dakota on Thursday, and first place Northern Colorado on Saturday. Both games start at 7pm.
