More State Champs
Who were the State Champs elsewhere in the U.S.? Pick another state from the menu:
Jordan Hasquet, a 6-foot-9 power forward from Missoula, was the state player of the year when the Grizz signed him in 2004. After a redshirt season, he had a breakout 2005-06 and, by the end of his college career, could be one of the nation's top mid-major stars. Hasquet scored 20 points in an upset of Stanford in December '05, put up a double-double in the Big Sky title game to send Montana to the NCAAs, and scored in double-figures in both of its tourney games.
Outside Player: Oregon State
Oregon State dropped in to take Jack McGillis, a two-star small forward, in its Class of 2005. He averaged 1.9 points and 0.5 assists per game in reserve action as a freshman.
Dragging In-State: ???
No one, really. Montana State has more in-state players on its roster than Montana does, but the Grizz have been to two straight NCAA tournaments and the Bobcats haven't been dancing since 1996.
