N. Arizona 72, Montana 64

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) -- Kyle Landry scored a career-high 27 points and Josh Wilson added 19 as Northern Arizona used a second-half rally to beat Montana 72-64 Thursday night.

Landry also pulled down 11 rebounds for the Lumberjacks (11-6, 3-1 Big Sky) while Wilson had a game-high eight assists.

Matt Martin had 15 points to pace Montana (6-9, 0-2), which has now lost seven of its last eight.

Ryan Staudacher finished with 14 points for the Grizzlies while Andrew Strait had 12 and Jordan Hasquet 10.

Montana led 35-26 at halftime but Northern Arizona went ahead to stay at 57-55 on Landry's off-balance jumper with 5:20 remaining.

Landry then made six free throws in the final 1:06 to seal the victory.

The Grizzlies had beaten the Lumberjacks in their last two meetings in Flagstaff- in the regular-season finale last year and in the 2006 conference tournament title game.

Strait made all 11 of his field goals in a game here last season but was just 5-of-7 from the floor on Thursday night.

Staudacher's 3-pointer with 10:20 left in the first half capped an 8-0 run to give Montana a 12-point lead.
