The Grizzlies are big inside again and boast one of BSC’s top front-line players in 6-foot-11 senior Brian Qvale, who is averaging 13.4 points and 7.9 rebounds per game. Montana State features one the Big Sky’s best one-two offensive punches in senior guard Erik Rush, who is averaging 15.9 points, and junior forward Bobby Howard, who is averaging 15.2.
