Up 16 under 2 minutes. It would have to be a UNI level of meltdown to lose.

Griz win by 17. Montana may have played a better second half at some point, but I certainly haven't seen it in my 17 years watching them. Even the 2012 second half against Damian Lillard wasn't this dominant. :shock: :shock: :shock:

Yeah, that 2nd half was some amazing ball.

Interesting defensive decisions by DeCuire the last 2 second-halves. Instead of putting Defensive POY Oguine on the star (Spight, Bliznyuk), he put Rorie on him. It worked, whatever the reasoning.

Yep. Great D by Rorie. In the first half, Bogdan was seeing some double teams but everyone else was hitting shots. That’s tough to do for a whole game and Montana also shot the ball well.

Hays off to the Griz. Keep winning.

Just saw an interview with Decuire and he said the reasoning was to put more speed on the star players. I guess he feels Rorie is faster on d?

Could be, though I'm guessing yesterday it was mostly because it was the non-Bliznyuk players killing us in the first half.
