Description

Underfunded and sidelined by men’s athletics, the Lady Griz, as they came to be known, bloomed under the fresh Title IX regulations that brought equal funding, scholarships and facilities to women’s collegiate sports. Selvig’s hard-driving style took the team from humble roots playing before empty stands and built them into the preeminent women’s basketball program west of the Rockies. Selvig’s hard-driving style took the team from humble roots, playing before empty stands, and built them into the preeminent women’s basketball program west of the Rockies.Coach Selvig’s pioneering approach recruited young women not only from the small towns and one-room schoolhouses of Big Sky Country’s ranching and farming communities, but also the sprawling Native reservations across the state. He drilled his young charges in the fundamentals, with an inclusive, barrier-breaking philosophy new for its time: he expected them to play just as hard as the men. Flanked and empowered by his female assistant coaches, drawn from the ranks of his former players, Selvig created a home --a family --leading generations of athletes to conference championships and NCAA appearances.

    What a timely doc showcasing how a coach in Montana brought women’s basketball to life and how a ‘Lady Griz family’ was built. A beautiful story that gives young girls the conviction to follow their dreams. Amazing to see what was created in Montana and how to this day, the crowd and the Lady Griz are still capturing the hearts of Montana and the nation!

    Terrific filmmaking and a great look into the amount of hard work it took to build a powerhouse women’s program during a time when such programs faced even more obstacles than they do today!
