After a successful regular season, the Montana Grizzlies have landed the No. 13 seed in the East region for the 2012 NCAA Tournament, as the selection committee announced on Sunday. The Grizzlies are the only Big Sky team to get a bid, since they won the conference tournament championship on Wednesday.

The East region should pose numerous challenges for this Montana squad. In the second round of the tournament, the Grizzlies will be facing No. 4 Wisconsin, with the winner moving on to face either No. 5 Vanderbilt or No. 12 Harvard in the third round.

If the Grizzlies are able to pull off an upset in the opening round, they could eventually face the likes of Syracuse or Ohio State, the region's top-two seeds, in later rounds.
