Quotes from Jon Messick
"Montana is a tough team and they have played a tough schedule so far," said head coach Jon Messick. "Their losses this spring have come to really good teams, and they have been playing at a high level. Montana is also a very deep team, and we are going to have our work cut out for us, but if we play well I think we will have a shot at winning."
