The Griz have found tremendous success in the confines of Dahlberg Arena, which was named after the great George "Jiggs" Dahlberg, who was an athlete, a coach and an athletic director at The University of Montana.
George "Jiggs" Dahlberg earned six varsity letters at UM in football and basketball in the early 1920s. He was the Grizzly basketball coach for 22 years (1937-54) and then became athletic director (1954-70). dahlberg passed away in September of 1993, just two weeks after he was inducted into the Grizzly Sports Hall of Fame. He will be remembered for his success at Montana, and the Grizzly basketball team continues to carry on that tradition.
