At around noon today I will be hopping onto a charter with the Griz Basketball team, my co-workers, our dance team, our band, and some media personnel and we will fly south to Albuquerque, New Mexico, for the 2012 NCAA Tournament.
With the team’s win in the Big Sky Conference Tournament last Wednesday, they punched their ticket to the Big Dance. This past Sunday, the Selection Committee rewarded the Griz with a #13 seed and a date against the #4 seeded Wisconsin Badgers in The Pit on the campus of the University of New Mexico.
The Griz will have a shot against Wisconsin come Thursday. It has been a lot of fun watching the national analysts make their pick in our game. Doug Gottlieb (who I despise) and Andy Katz (who I like) both picked Montana to upset the Badgers. If Wisconsin wants to win, they will have to snap the longest win streak in the nation right now…not an easy task.
