CBS Sports: Montana Is the Cinderella Team to Watch
You probably saw my post earlier in the week about The University of Montana Grizzlies making it into the NCAA March Madness tournament.
Montana will face Michigan in the first round played in Wichita, Kansas. This is very exciting news for the Grizzlies, of course. But do the Griz have a shot at actually winning against Michigan?
Matt Norlander with CBSSports.com says Montana "is the true dark horse Cinderella team in the 2018 NCAA tournament." He adds, "Ahmaad Rorie is the name to know."
Here's more from CBSSports.com:
A true Cinderella is a 14 or 15 that basically know one you know in real life actually picks. Total shock factor. Montana is the team with that potential. Everyone is hot on Michigan. The Wolverines are a true 3 seed. They've earned it. They also don't play until about 9:50 ET on Thursday night. Long layoff for John Beilein's team. Montana has only dropped two games since Christmas, and it's a pretty stingy team in the paint. Plus, Michigan is a bad free throw shooting team (65.7 percent). The chance is there.
