BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Sayeed Pridgett scored 18 points and Montana overcame a 12-point deficit to beat Eastern Washington 68-62 on Saturday night for its second straight Big Sky Tournament title and NCAA bid.
Playing with a smaller lineup of five guards, Montana took its first lead midway through the second half.
Montana: Montana could be facing the departure of coach Travis DeCuire, who has already been linked to coaching vacancies at major programs.
Eastern Washington: Coach Shantay Legans will have to deal with the loss of Hunt, the senior who lead the team in scoring and was the Big Sky’s top rebounder.
Montana await its seeding for the NCAA Tournament.
