    Montana State never trailed in the game but Southern Utah came within two points in the final 2 minutes.

    Damon Heuir scored 20 points to lead the Thunderbirds (5-12, 3-5), who have lost five in a row. Jackson Stevenett added 19 points and Jayson Cheesman had 13 points and eight rebounds for Southern Utah, which played without center Jaren Jeffery, sidelined by an illness.
