And the Bears continue to roll. 9 in a arrow and on to the semi-finals in the Big Sky Tournament.

An OT win and they are one win away from a birth in the Big Dance. Hell of a run for them.

Would be nice to see EWU upset Montana in the other semi final game.

An absolute heart stopping OT win over Sacramento. 10 straight and in the championship game. Good luck Bears against Montana.

Probably just on bigskytv.org. Either way, I'll be watching. Go Bears!

This Bears team is seriously tough.

We are not going to get to 50 points. The offense has lost the plot.

Gesh...what a painful collapse. No one showed up in the second half. They should still get an NIT bid.

What really hurts is that it was at Montana. I thought the Montana broadcast team was really good but the horrific whining from the fans whenever a call went against Montana was too much to take (turned the audio off).

Really though, hell of a run by the UNC women, they should be really proud of their season. Lets hope they get invited to the NIT.

They blew it... they'd beat the men's team though. :roll:

Better coached too. Etheridge is our highest paid coach at UNC and she's well deserved. I'm looking forward to seeing who she can recruit.

They should get in the WNIT based on how they played the last month+, but I don't think they will. They had a #123 RPI ranking (according to realtimerpi) before yesterday's loss and I don't think that will be good enough. The mediocre first 2.5 months doom them, I'm guessing. Maybe UNC will get in the WBI like they did in 2011.

The broadcast team did do a decent job. The play-by-play guy (who was the same as for the men's tourney) was a little annoying at times, but former Lady Griz Krista (Redpath) Pyron does a good job as a color commentator—she also did that during the '11-12 season when UM was using separate web commentators & not just piping in the radio feed.

She did do a good job this year. You guys really benefited from the firing of K-State's staff after last season.

Also, as an opposing fan, I'm quite glad my team doesn't have to go against D'Shara Strange again.

OK, I was wrong. You guys got a WNIT bid… and so did EWU… and NoDak got a WBI bid, too. And I'm pretty sure your team has a wwwwaaaaaayyyyy better chance of winning their first postseason game than the Lady Griz do. :?

That really blows that Montana is a 16 seed. I didn't think we were one of the worst women's basketball conferences in D-I.
