Think about this:
In the 50-year history of the Big Sky Conference just 23 players including Montana's Larry Krystowiak and Andrew Strait, have scored more points than senior wing Kareem Jamar.
And if he hits his 20 point or so average Thursday night in Missoula against Weber State "Reem" will inch within a decent first half Saturday of moving into the league's top 20.
But if you think finishing his career in the top five of all-time Griz scorers is more important to Kareem than how many dimes he dishes as he moves toward the top of that list, you'd be mistaken.
With six points vs. Weber State Jamar moves past Wildcat legend Willie Sojourner and into 23rd on the all-time list but with 386, he stands fifth on Montana's all-time assist list with the chance of surpassing former teammate Will Cherry this week.
And if Montana is to be successful against the Wildcats and then Idaho State, Jamar's contribution in both areas is crucial.
While with an upset overtime loss to Idaho State earlier this week cut Weber's league lead to just two games over Northern Colorado and left them standing three better than North Dakota and Northern Arizona, Weber looks like the team to beat even though they haven't been a great road team and four of their last six are away from Dee Events Center.
Randy Rahe teams have lost just 27 league games in his eight-year tenure in Ogden, just short of 80 percent far and away the league's top standard.
The Wildcats allow just 65 points an outing but Idaho State scored 70 in regulation Monday night and added eight overtime points to secure the upset.
But was the outcome an anomaly or was Weber just unable to solve the zone which I'm sure Montana will employ plenty of Thursday.
Weber has given up just 36 percent from long range during league play but surrendered nine of 18 treys to Idaho State.
Kyle Tresnak is a giant presence near the rim and Joel Bolomboy of course is the circuit's top boarder but I think the Griz bench figures paramount in this one.
Weber is thin there and played Monday night and will play in Bozeman on Saturday.
Montana's won the last four over the Wildcats in Missoula and with just a taste of good fortune, they'll make it five straight.
