Great Falls vs Montana

Montana 60, Great Falls 59


MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) - Will Cherry hit two free throws with 13 seconds left, and Montana escaped with a 60-59 victory Monday over Great Falls in the Grizzlies' home opener.

Kareem Jamar scored 14 points and grabbed 14 rebounds for Montana (1-1), and Cherry added 11 points. His free throws gave Montana a 60-56 lead before the Argonauts' Marcel Towns drained a 3-pointer with 3 seconds left. Great Falls (4-1) fouled and Shawn Stockton missed two free throws, but James Holmes' desperation 3-pointer at the buzzer was off the mark.

Great Falls had rallied from an 11-point halftime deficit, taking a 50-47 lead on a Ken Anderson jumper with 6:49 to play. Anderson led all scorers with 18 points, Towns scored 17 and added eight steals, and Melvin Williams had 12 points.

The Argonauts shot 54 percent from the field in the second half, fueling the 26-7 run that briefly gave them the lead.
