Montana 80, Idaho State 63

MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) -- Kamarr Davis scored 20 points Saturday
and Montana used a 25-2 run in the first half to coast past Idaho
State 80-63.

The Grizzlies (12-10, 6-3 Big Sky) sandwiched runs of 9-0 and
16-0 around a basket by Nate Rede -- ISU's only score over a
nine-minute period -- and went from a 17-15 lead to a 42-17 lead
with 2:43 left in the first half.

Kevin Criswell added 15 points for the Grizzlies, who led 47-22
at halftime.

Logan Kinghorn scored 23 of his 34 points for ISU (8-14, 2-7) in
the first half. He made 13-of-24 shots for more than half of his
team's points, while the rest of the team made just 11-of-46 shots
for 24 percent shooting.

Montana led 75-51 on a basket by Virgil Matthews with 8:10
remaining, but scored just five points the rest of the way. Idaho
State could get no closer than 77-63 on a basket by Kinghorn with
1:33 remaining.

John Seyfert had 12 points and nine rebounds for the Grizzlies,
who shot 50 percent from the field.
