The Montana men lost to Michigan in the NCAA's for the second-straight year, 74-55. The Griz did score 8 more points than they did in 2018's meeting, but they lost by a slightly bigger margin nonetheless. Sayeed Pridgett led Montana with 17 points, while Ahmaad Rorie had 10 points and 5 assists in his final game.
Idaho's women ensured the Big Sky wouldn't go 0-for-the-postseason by beating Loyola Marymount in L.A. 79-64. The Vandals led by 22 at the half and led by double digits for nearly the entire game past the first quarter. Idaho committed an uncharacteristic 19 turnovers, but they won the boards by 11 and won perimeter shooting 41%-16%. Lizzy Klinker had her best-ever game with a career-high 24 points and a career-high 15 rebounds.
Idaho State had no such luck, losing to Arizona in Tucson 66-56. Whistles ultimately decided this game as the Wildcats won fouls 24-15 and free throws 26-9. The one big positive for the Bengals was that this result was significantly closer than their regular-season loss to UA (71-46). Saylair Grandon had 22 points in her final game, but fellow senior star Grace Kenyon missed the game with an ankle injury.
The college career of Savannah Smith also came to end tonight as Northern Colorado lost to Wyoming 68-60. It didn't really come to an end in style, however, as Smith went a mind-numbing 2/23 from the field and scored just 4 points—her lowest total since scoring 2 in a loss at Air Force in which she got hurt 5 minutes in. Meanwhile, the Cowgirls shot 51% from the field and 90% from the line.
