Idaho St. 64, Montana St. 49

POCATELLO, Idaho (AP) -- Matt Stucki scored 21 points, Logan Kinghorn had a double-double with 13 points and 13 rebounds, and Idaho State beat Montana State 64-49 on Thursday night.

Idaho State (10-16, 7-6 Big Sky) controlled the boards, outrebounding the Bobcats 44-29, including 17 offensive rebounds. Donnie Carson added 12 points and eight rebounds for the Bengals.

Divaldo Mbung led Montana State with 12 points and eight rebounds and Carlos Taylor scored 11. But the Bobcats (15-11, 7-6) could not overcome their poor shooting. Montana State shot just 25 percent in the second half and 32 percent for the game.

Idaho State led by six at halftime, but quickly built the lead to double figures in the second half, taking an 11-point advantage with 12 minutes left on Stucki's breakaway dunk. Montana State never got closer than nine.
