No. 14 seed, East Region
The Grizzlies finished third in the Big Sky, so their only chance at making the NCAA tournament was to win the conference tourney -- which they did, in unbelievable fashion. Trailing by 20 points to Weber State at halftime of the Big Sky title game, Montana rode senior guard Anthony Johnson to an improbable 66-65 comeback win. Johnson, who finished with 42 points on the night, scored 34 in the second half, including the Grizzlies' final 21 points. New Mexico, you've been warned.
