    BOZEMAN (AP) -- Chelsey Chambers scored 16 points and Molly Hays added 13 points and 11 rebounds Saturday afternoon to lead Idaho State to a 72-59 victory over Montana State in the regular-season finale for both teams.

    Montana State (8-18, 3-11 Big Sky) hit three 3-pointers in the first minute to take a 9-0 lead, but Idaho State used its size and 40-30 rebounding advantage to post the win and eliminate MSU from the league tournament.

    Idaho State led just 38-34 at halftime, but Montana State made just six field goals in the second half.

    Christa Brossman added 12 points and seven rebounds for ISU (12-15, 7-7) while India Soo added 10 points.

    Alyssa Nelson led MSU with 13 points, followed by Hillary Scott with 12 and Jaimey Tanner with 11. Kati Burrows got into foul trouble and scored just nine points in 19 minutes before fouling out.

    Burrows finished her career as the third all-time leading MSU scorer with 1,528 points.
