--Through Jan. 8, senior G Chase Grabau ranked 24th nationally in assist-to-turnover ratio (2.71 to 1).
--Montana guard Will Cherry had four steals in the victory over Idaho State. That moved him from 16th to a tie for 13th on the Big Sky's career list for thefts with 174 entering this week's games. "That's nice," Cherry told The Missoulian. He matched Cal State Northridge's Markus Carr on the Big Sky list. "I have to give credit to my coaches, though," he said. "Since I came here my freshman year they gave me the confidence, the leadership and the leeway to roam a lot and get those steals. They allow me to take those chances because they know I'm reliable."
