Lady Griz

The Lady Griz scored a road win 59-51 over Sacramento State Thursday night to secure the Big Sky Conference title.

Senior forward Katie Baker led the way for Montana with 26 points in the contest.  Kellie Cole and Carly Selvig each added 7 points.

Montana jumped out to an 8-point halftime advantage and held on for the victory.

The Lady Griz will now host the Big Sky tournament in Missoula.  The tournament will begin Thursday (March 14th). Unless the Montana men also clinch the conference (which they are one home win Saturday vs Northern Arizona away from doing).  In that scenario both tournaments will be held in Missoula and first round play will begin Wednesday.
