Grizzlies - Originally known as the Bears with a live black bear named Teddy as the mascot, the university's basketball team officially became the Grizzlies (sometimes called the Silvertips) in 1923 when they were admitted to the Pacific Coast Conference (PCC). That same year Montana became the first state in the nation to designate grizzlies as a protected game animal. However, this name change would later prove problematic for their new PCC conference mate, UCLA, who had also recently changed their name to the Grizzlies. When UCLA petitioned to join the conference in 1926, Montana claimed rights to the name, and the UCLA Grizzlies became the UCLA Bruins when they were admitted to the conference in 1928.
