    BOZEMAN (AP) -- Led by Scotta Morton with 28 points, Montana State snapped its 14-game losing streak Monday with a 92-84 victory over Utah Valley State.

    The 28 points was Morton's third-straight career-high. She connected on 11-of-20 from the field and four-of-five from the free throw line.

    "Scotta has really taken leadership of the team," said head coach Tricia Binford, who recorded her first career victory with Monday's win. "She has been phenomenal the last month."

    All five starters for Montana State (1-11) scored in double-figures; Nubia Garcia had 16, Amanda DeHaan had 13, Jenny Heringer scored 11, and Alyssa Nelson had 10.

    The Bobcats jumped out to an early six-0 lead and built a 36-20 advantage on a Shannon Bosley basket at the 2:41 mark. MSU entered intermission with a 38-24 lead.

    In the second half, Montana State took its largest lead, 72-54, on a Heringer three-pointer with 7:28 remaining. Utah Valley State (4-9) then cut the margin to 83-75 with 1:14 remaining.
