    POCATELLO, Idaho -- Jordan Gregory scored 21 points, including 5 of 9 from 3-point range, and Montana scored the final seven points of the second half in overtaking Idaho State and winning 59-54 on Thursday night.

    Idaho State led 30-21 at halftime and maintained the lead in the second period until Gregory hit a trey for Montana, tying the score at 46 with 5:49 remaining. Gregory netted two more 3-pointers sandwiched around a Bengal 3 to go ahead 52-49 with 2:03 to play.
