Taylor went 8-for-10 from the field, including 3-for-3 from three-point range, and grabbed a team-high 11 rebounds. His performance marked the first double-double of his career.
Montana State (10-8, 2-3 Big Sky) went on an 11-2 run early in the second half to take an 18-point lead with just over fourteen minutes remaining. The Bengals never came closer than seven points in the second half.
Montana State's win marked the largest margin of victory in the MSU-ISU series since a 78-47 Bobcat victory on January 18, 2002.
