After a horrendous start, Montana showed some signs of offensive life toward the end of the first half against Michigan.The Grizzlies made made five of their final eight shots in the half after starting 4-of-25. Michigan put on a defensive clinic for much of the half, taking the Grizzlies out of their offense and forcing either a three-pointer or a 1-on-1 drive to the basket. Montana will need much more hot shooting in the second half to overcome a 34-21 deficit.

Nothing is coming easy for Montana on the offensive end in the final game of the day in Des Moines. Michigan is contesting every Montana shot and most of them aren't going in. The Grizzlies are shooting 16 percent (4-of-25) with seven minutes left in the first half. Michigan leads 23-8 and at this rate won't have to score much more to advance to the second round.

Michigan, which fell behind Montana 10-0 in last year's NCAA tournament first-round game, is under none of the same stress in this year's game against the Grizzlies. By holding the Grizzlies to 1-of-8 shooting, the Wolverines are up 9-2 five minutes in.

Michigan will face Montana in the first round of the NCAA tournament for the second straight season. Despite this on-court familiarity, the Wolverines admit they don't know much about Montana the state. Ignas Brazdeikis pleaded ignorance by saying he's from Canada. Zavier Simpson is from Ohio but he also had nothing to share. That left it to Charles Matthews, who said, "It's on the West Coast."
