Ryan Tootell and Colter Nuanez sat down with Andrew Strait and Jordan Hasquet, who both played for Larry Krystkowiak and Wayne Tinkle at the University of Montana, to get a player's perspective on what it was like to play for both men. Strait and Hasquet were recruited to the University of Montana by Pat Kennedy, but they played for Coach Krystkowiak and Coach Tinkle. They were both key pieces on the team that upset the University of Nevada in the NCAA Tournament and is the last team from the Big Sky Conference to win a game in the NCAA Tournament. Andrew Strait came to the University of Montana from Yakima, WA and finished as one of the top-10 scorers in program history (4:51). Jordan Hasquet went to Missoula Sentinel and is from one of the best basketball families in the state of Montana and has more memories with Coach Krystkowiak and Tinkle than just having played for them in college (21:02).

What is Griz Greats: The Coaching Tree?

Griz Greats: The Coaching Tree brought to you by Blackfoot Communications, Berkshire Hathaway, and Stockman's Bar is an interview series hosted by Ryan Tootell and Colter Nuanez from ESPN Missoula. University of Montana basketball has an illustrious reputation for producing some of the best college basketball coaches that the game has ever seen, and it can be traced back to legendary Michigan State head men's basketball coach Jud Heathcote, who got his first college head coaching job at the University of Montana. The coaches that have followed him have gone on to make their own significant marks in college basketball at places like Stanford, Old Dominion, and Utah to name a few. Ryan and Colter sat down with every Montana head men's basketball coach who followed Jud Heathcote to talk about what makes Montana basketball and Missoula special. Bonus episodes include interviews with some former Montana basketball players and other significant influences on the program.
