Basketball season is right around the corner and the Grizzlies are once again excited to welcome fans inside Dahlberg Arena. As an added bonus, Montana will play 17 home games in 2021-22, its largest number since 2014-15 and a figure that has been reached just twice in the past three decades.
Season tickets have been on sale, but now Griz fans have opportunities to purchase mini plans and non-conference single-game tickets.
Mini plans come in packs of five or eight, and allow fans to select any regular-season games of their choosing. With Big Sky single-game tickets currently not being sold, mini plans or season tickets are also the only way to guarantee tickets for Montana’s Big Sky contests, including rivalry games against Weber State (Jan. 1), Eastern Washington (Jan. 29) and Montana State (Feb. 27).
Mini plans also give fans tickets at a discounted rate.
Montana was picked to finish fourth in the Big Sky Conference preseason polls, which were announced last week. The Grizzlies are coming off of a 15-13 campaign that saw a strong late-season push and a pair of wins in the Big Sky tournament. Of the group that finished the season with Montana, the Griz return 91.8 percent of their minutes, 94.4 percent of their scoring, 90.9 percent of their rebounding and 93.8 percent of their steals.
Overall, the team returns its top-three scorers and top-two rebounders, including a freshman class that set school records for scoring and starts and was the only team in the nation to have three true freshmen average at least 25.0 minutes per game. Montana also brought in four freshmen and three transfers during the offseason, including graduate transfer Scott Blakney (Idaho) and a junior-college addition in Lonnell Martin Jr.
While the regular season begins Nov. 9 vs. Dickinson State, fans can get a sneak peek at the team on Wednesday for the annual Maroon-Silver Scrimmage. The Lady Griz tip at 5 p.m., before the men take the court at 6:30. Admission to both scrimmages is free.
