Montana kicked off the season on a .500 run with an 8-8 record through 16 games. The Grizzlies hit a 4-4 stretch in the next eight with wins over Idaho State, Portland State, Northern Colorado and Northern Arizona in that time. 

Matched up against Idaho State on Thursday, the Grizzlies held a 34-34 tie at the break. Montana went on a 35-27 run in the second half and won 69-61. Dischon Thomas was tops on the team with 16 points and three rebounds. 

Weber State Wildcats 

Over on the Weber State side, they posted a 7-9 run over their first 16 games of the year. The Wildcats went 5-3 in the next eight games though, beating Montana, Portland State, Sacramento State, Idaho and Idaho State along the way.

I’ll lean toward Weber State in this one. The Wildcats are a solid 5-2 over their last seven games, with only one bad showing (an 88-54 road loss to Northern Colorado) in that stretch. Weber State won a close game the last time these teams met up on January 12 at Dahlberg Arena. In that one the Wildcats eked out a 59-57 victory in a back-and-forth matchup. As for Montana, they’ve won four straight games with 67 or more points scored in each. This rematch should be close as well. I like Weber State a little better but you could make a case either way.
