Montana Grizzlies vs Oregon Ducks 12/18/2019
Montana Grizzlies have been riding with Sayeed Pridget all season long. He has averaged well across the board with 18.9 points, 7.7 rebounds, 3.2 assists, 2.3 steals and 1 block per game. Pridget has been doing everything from offense to defense. Other than him, Kendal Manuel had been their second top scorer for the team with 13.1 points. Montana is on a momentum as they won three of their last four games with a fair margin. They need more players to step up if they want this game to come close or even have a chance in beating the Oregon Ducks. Derrick Carter-Hollinger, Timmy Falls and Josh Vasquez have provided the support but the Ducks coaching staff would need them to step up and make their presence felt early on to give more space to Pridget to operate on the Ducks defense.
Players to watch:

This was the second overtime game for them this season as they battled Gonzaga as well but the result was not in their favor. They also gave the North Carolina Tar Heels a great challenge losing by only four points. Payton Pritchard has rallied this team on top of the best teams in the country doing 19.2 points, 5.9 assists, 4.1 rebounds and 1.6 steals per night. His team got depth having Anthony Mathis and Chris Duarte providing the additional support. Will Richardson and Shakur Juiston had shown great potential as well.
