Over in Missoula, the Lady Griz hit the road this week after a successful home stand over the weekend with wins over Portland State and Eastern Washington.
While the Lady Griz are the defending champs, they weren't picked to repeat in the preseason, as they graduated a talented senior class. So is it safe to say the Lady Griz are exceeding expectations?
"No, just because we have great chemistry and I think we all play so well together that I knew it would start to flow, and we're really happy with how it's going, and we'll continue to go out there and play hard, play together every game," says junior forward Carly Selvig.
"I mean if we're shooting good, we'll always get good shots, so we just have to knock them down, and if we're knocking them down I think we're pretty tough to beat," adds sophomore guard Haley Vining.
