Big Sky basketball standings 2013: Montana claims regular season title

Nelson Chenault-US PRESSWIRE

The Grizzlies lost just one game in league play this season and captured the regular season title as a result.

Montana and Weber State were the class of the Big Sky Conference this season, finishing a combined 37-3 in league play. The two teams split their season series, but the Grizzlies edged the Wildcats by a game to win the regular season conference championship.

Aside from those two, only North Dakota finished with a winning record in league play, while a couple of teams finished at .500. No member of the league has the resume necessary to earn an at-large bid to the NCAA tournament, so the stakes for the league tournament that begins on Thursday are high. Montana has a leg-up on the field, as it received a bye into the semifinal round by virtue of its first-place finish in the regular season.

Here are the final regular season standings:

Conf. Overall
Montana 19-1 23-6
Weber State 18-2 24-5
North Dakota 12-8 15-15
Montana State 10-10 13-16
Northern Colorado 10-10 12-17
Southern Utah 8-12 11-19
Northern Arizona 8-12 11-20
Sacramento State 8-12 14-15
Eastern Washington 7-13 10-21
Portland State 5-15 8-20
Idaho State 5-15 6-24
