    San Diego 53, Montana State 48

    SAN DIEGO (AP) -- Montana State junior Scotta Morton recorded a career-high 22 points Wednesday evening, but it wasn't enough as the Bobcats fell 53-48 to San Diego in the opening game of the fifth annual Surf'n Slam Classic.

    Morton converted eight-of-14 from the field, including four three-pointers. Also contributing for Montana State (0-10) were Jenny Heringer with nine, and Whitney Connolly with seven.

    The Bobcats, in search of their first win of the season, held a 36-31 advantage at the 8:37 mark of the second stanza on a three-point play by Morton. But San Diego (4-7) reeled off an 11-0 run over the next three minutes.

    A Connolly three-pointer with 3:06 left pulled the Bobcats to within 47-46, but MSU would get no closer.

    San Diego was led by Tiara Harris and Kelly Winther with 17 points each.
