The Grizzlies ended their season with a 63-53 loss to Idaho State in the first round of the Big Sky Tournament. However, as one of the youngest teams in the conference, Montana found its groove under first-year head coach Shannon Schweyen, winning four of the last seven games. Montana played the 2016-17 season without two of its best players, including Kayleigh Valley who entered last season as the pre-season Big Sky MVP. Redshirt freshman Taylor Goligoski led the Griz with 10.7 points per game. Meanwhile, McKenzie Johnston paced the team in rebounds and assists with 5.0 and 3.0 per game, respectively.
