Lady Griz Take Experience and Talent into Next Season

MISSOULA -

Making the NCAA tournament was Plan A, when that failed the Lady Griz went to Plan B, that being the WNIT tournament. After beating Pac 12 Washington State the Lady Griz hosted San Diego. Down twelve in the second half Montana stormed back, but the comeback fell just short and the Lady Griz season ended with a 57-60 loss.

"Honestly I rather lose a close game than get blown out any day, that was actually a good way to go out if we had to go out," said Sophomore McCalle Feller.

We could have been done last week, or two weeks ago and we got to keep playing so I'm just grateful and thankful that we got to comeback and play a few more games," said senior Jordan Sullivan.

One of the keys to Montana's season ended earlier than they'd hoped were turnovers. They committed 21 of them that led to 22 San Diego points.

"We usually are a really good team we usually take care of it really well, I mean that probably is the reason why we lost and I think if we took care of the ball better we might have a different ending to the story," said Feller.

Another hurdle the Lady Griz had to face were injuries. Starters Torry Hill and Carly Selvig were out with ACL's tears.

"it's always hard to go out with different players on the floor, the chemistry is always a little different, everything's a little different but I think we handled it very well," said Feller.

Despite the loss, it was an electric atmosphere inside Dahlberg Arena and a memorable last game for Senior Jordan Sullivan.

"You know I have no reason to cry because we have some great players out with injuries and got to come back and the crowd was so cool and everyone came back and supported us the way they always do and it was just a blessing to be a part of," said Sullivan.

So the Montana season comes to an end but with a handful of young talented players the future certainly looks bright for the Lady Griz.
