    BOZEMAN, Mont. (AP) -- Al Beye scored 10 points in the second half, including all six of his free throw attempts, to lead Montana State to a 75-71 come-from-behind win Friday night over San Jose State in the consolation championship of the Holiday Stores-GranTree Inn Classic.

    Beye, who finished with 13 points on three-of-four shooting from the field, put MSU (6-7) up 72-67 with a put-back with 1:11 left.

    Alex Elam's layup cut the lead to 72-69, but a free throw by Ja'Ron Jefferson gave MSU a 73-69 lead with 25.6 seconds left.

    Julian Richardson hit a layup with 15.8 seconds remaining to pull the Spartans (4-9) to 73-71.

    Casey Durham hit one of two free throws to give the Bobcats a 74-71 lead, and after Carlton Spencer missed a three-point try, Derek Edmonds was fouled and hit one of two free throws to set the final score.

    Trailing 46-41 following a three-pointer by Nick Dissly, the Spartans went on a 16-3 run, and led 57-49 on Spencer's short jumper at the 10:01 mark.

    MSU used a 9-2 run to tie the game at 63 on a Durham free throw with 4:46 left. A three-pointer by Edmonds gave MSU a 70-65 lead with 2:14 remaining.

    Marvin Moss led MSU with 16 points. Jefferson had 12 for the Bobcats.

    Elam led the Spartans with 12 points. Demetrius Brown and Spencer each scored 11, and Richardson had 10.
