The Montana Grizzlies enter the NCAA Tournament as winners of 14 straight and champions of the Big Sky Tournament. The Grizzlies' impressive season has earned them a No. 13 seed and date with the Wisconsin Badgers on Thursday in the East Region.
The Grizzlies are led by junior guard Will Cherry, who enters averaging a team-high 16 points per game. Swing man Kareer Jamar has also been terrific for Montana in his sophomore season. Jamar enters the NCAA Tournament averaging 13.8 points per game and 5.6 rebounds per game.
If Montana is to pull the upset over Wisconsin, they'd be wise to stop Jordan Taylor. The Badgers' senior point guard enters averaging 14.7 points per contest, a team-high.
