Montana's Ahmaad Rorie drives against Eastern Washington's in the first half of the Big Sky Championship game in Reno, Nev., on Saturday. 


MISSOULA — Awards keep rolling in for Montana's junior guard Ahmaad Rorie.

The first-team All-Big Sky player was named to the National Association of Basketball Coaches' All-District 6 First-Team on Tuesday.

Rorie, a 6-foot-1 transfer from Oregon, leads the Big Sky Conference champion Grizzlies in scoring at 21.9 points per game while leading the conference with 106 three-pointers on the season to tie for the eighth-most in a single season in Big Sky history.

The first-team is nearly all Big Sky Conference players. Aside from Rorie, Weber State guard Jerrick Harding, Eastern Washington guard-forward combo Bogdan Bliznyuk and Northern Colorado guard Andre Spight made the first team. The fifth player to make the team is New Mexico State's Jemerrio Jones.

Players named to the second-team: New Mexico State guard Zach Lofton, Idaho guard Victor Sanders, UT Rio Grande Valley guard Nick Dixon, Idaho forward Brayon Blake and Sacramento State forward Justin Strings.
