The Montana Grizzlies will be returning home after a two-game road trip. They will square off against the St. Thomas (MN) Tommies at 9:30 p.m. ET Thursday at Dahlberg Arena. St. Thomas (MN) will be strutting in after a win while the Grizzlies will be stumbling in from a loss.
Montana was expected to have a tough go of it last Friday, and, well, they did. Things couldn’t have gone much worse for them as they lost 86-64 to the Xavier Musketeers. The top scorers for Montana were forward Dischon Thomas (15 points) and guard Lonnell Martin Jr. (13 points). Montana went 14-3 at home a season ago while going 18-14 overall. The Grizzlies averaged 72.2 points per game last season, 15.6 on free throws and 21 from 3-point range.
The Grizzlies are now 0-2 while St. Thomas (MN) sits at 2-1. A couple last-season stats to keep an eye on: Montana has allowed their opponents to shoot 64.20% from the floor on average, which is the 363rd highest shooting percentage allowed in college basketball.
However, St. Thomas (MN) ranks 22nd in college basketball when it comes to field goal percentage, with 44.10% on the season. Maybe that strength will give the Tommies the oomph they need to beat the odds. St. Thomas finished 10-20 overall last season while going 3-12 on the road. The Tommies averaged 12.6 assists per game on 26.7 made field goals last season. This is the first time these teams have played each other within the last seven years.
Barring any buzzer beaters, Montana is expected to win a tight contest. Currently 0-2 against the spread, they haven’t been a good investment. Montana is set to defend their home field and will most likely take the win, but St. Thomas wants their third win of the season.
