Thoughts on Tinkle’s successor

Thoughts on Tinkle’s successor
Uncategorized | 28 May 2014

Here are some of my own thoughts about who might have applied to take over the Montana men’s basketball program from Wayne Tinkle. It’s important to note that these are just my thoughts and have not been verified in any fashion.

Star of the game: Kyle Richardson. The 6-foot-7 senior transfer from Long Beach State led Portland State with 19 points on 7-for-11 shooting. The Griz had no answer for the Vikings’ inside presence, a problem since the very beginning of the season for the Griz.
“We felt like we had a little bit of an advantage inside with Kyle,” Portland State coach Tyler Geving said. “The first …

Northern Arizona 67, Montana 47
Star of the game: It’s hard to pick just one, so I’ll go with NAU’s four low-post players – Gaellan Bewernick, Max Jacobsen, Ako Kaluna and Jordyn Martin. Those four combined for 34 points, 27 rebounds and seven assists.
“We obviously couldn’t rebound,” Montana’s Kareem Jamar said. “That’s the story of our season. When we come out and don’t rebound, we have games like this.”
This and that

Griz 53, Cats 50
Star of the game: Mike Weisner, in a close vote. The 6-foot-7 junior from Walla Walla, Wash., scored eight of his 11 points in the second half and hit what proved to be the game-winning 3-pointer with 1:26 to play, Montana’s last points of the game.
Has Weisner become something of a Cat killer?
