    MISSOULA (AP) -- Katie Edwards scored a career-high 28 points and grabbed a career-high nine rebounds in Montana's 78-59 victory over Sacramento State Saturday night.

    Edwards made 10-of-15 shots, including 7-of-8 from 3-point range, to spark the Lady Griz (13-3, 3-1 Big Sky). Edwards also had four assists.

    Mandy Morales added 15 points while Jody McLeod had 11 rebounds for the Lady Griz, who outrebounded the Hornets 47-27.

    Montana never trailed, jumping out to a quick 7-0 lead less than three minutes into the game on two inside baskets by freshman Tamara Guardipee and Edwards' first 3-pointer.

    The Lady Griz slowly built their lead to 33-20 on a layup by Morales with 2:07 to lay and led 36-26 at halftime.

    The Hornets (6-10, 1-3) cut the lead to eight on two occasions early in the second half, but Montana used a 12-2 run, capped by back-to-back 3-pointers from Edwards, to take a 54-36 lead. The Lady Griz weren't challenged again.

    Montana made 11-of-23 3-pointers.

    Cindy Alldrin had 13 points for Sacramento State while Lindsay Calmettes has 12, all on 3-pointers.
