    FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) -- Sandra Viksryte scored 15 points and grabbed nine rebounds Thursday in an 84-56 victory over Montana State.

    Northern Arizona (18-7, 8-2 Big Sky) has won 13 straight at home dating back to last season.

    Megan Porter and Alyssa Wahl added 14 points each and all 13 NAU players scored at least two points.

    Montana State (2-19, 1-8) tied the score at 30 on a jumper by Jenny Heringer with two minutes left in the first half, but NAU closed with an 8-0 run to take a 38-30 halftime lead.

    The Lumberjacks took a 45-35 lead on a 3-pointer by Megan Porter with 15:10 remaining and took a 67-47 lead on a free throw by Porter with 5:55 to play.

    A 3-pointer by Rachel Blackman with 21 seconds gave NAU the final margin. Kim Winkfield had seven assists for the Lumberjacks.

    Jenny Heringer led MSU with 13 points and seven rebounds, followed by Nubia Garcia with 10 points. Scotta Morton, who injured her ankle in last Friday's Cat-Griz game did start, but scored just four points in 30 minutes.
