The men's team in Missoula has struggled in the early going of Big Sky conference play. After losing to Eastern Washington on Thursday, and a multiple overtime loss to Portland State on Saturday, it would have been easy for the team to get down, but they're staying positive.
"At first, It was new for me, so I hadn't ever lost this much, maybe two games my freshman year. 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 and take the long way to hosting it, so I look at it as everything happens for a reason, and we're supposed to be here, so we have a good chance this week against a good two teams to make some spread in the conference," says senior guard Kareem Jamar.
