Montana loses, Eastern fans rejoice

(Since I'm an EWU grad, I hate Montana, hence this very spiteful post)

Hey Montana, a mid-major school beat you in the opening round of the tournament. Does that make you a mini-major?

SAN JOSE, Calif. -- After all of Darington Hobson's big talk about a deep NCAA tournament run for New Mexico, Montana nearly shut up the Lobos right away.

Roman Martinez had 19 points, six rebounds and four assists and third-seeded New Mexico overcame a shaky start to beat 14th-seeded Montana 62-57 in the NCAA tournament's East Regional on Thursday night.

Hobson added 11 points, 11 rebounds and six assists while playing with a sprained left wrist for the Lobos, who used a 17-0 run after halftime to briefly break open the game after trailing by a point at the break.

But now they'll probably raise a banner in their basketball arena.
