    Ward scored eight points during a 17-5 run that gave Montana a 29-22 lead at intermission. A 9-0 run early in the second half extended the lead to 38-24 on Spencer Coleman's 3-pointer.

    Idaho State closed to 50-42 on Ayibakuro Preh's dunk with 7:58 remaining, then used a 10-4 run to come within 55-52 on Hansen's 3-pointer with 2:33 left.
