Lady Griz
MISSOULA, Mont. -

The Lady Griz basketball team had an impressive streak on the line Saturday as they hosted Tennessee State in the annual Lady Griz Classic.

The Lady Griz had not lost a game in their annual Holiday Classic since 1999, and it was something they did not plan on doing against the Lady Tigers of Tennessee State. Montana beat the Idaho on Thursday, and on Saturday they beat Tennessee State to extend their winning streak to 26 in a row during the Lady Griz Classic.

Senior Forward Katie Baker earned MVP honors for her play during the weekend long tournament. Baker averaged 15.5 points and 5.5 rebounds while shooting 56.0 percent in Montana's two tournament wins to earn Lady Griz Classic MVP honors for the second straight year.

The Lady Griz are now 5-2 on the year and will face Wyoming Thursday in Dahlberg Arena. The Cowgirls are 5-1 and are holding their opponents to 55.3 points per game on 33.8 percent shooting. Thursday's game will tip off at 7 p.m.
