The dean of Big Sky Conference men’s basketball coaches, Northern Arizona’s Mike Adras, has called Montana senior center Brian Qvale the best big man in the league. It’s a position I’ve held since Qvale ate up New Mexico in last season’s NCAA tournament, so it was nice to have it validated by a well-respected coach.

UM wastes golden marketing opportunity
Uncategorized | 10 Dec 2010
