Montana vs Northern Arizona

Montana 78, N. Arizona 53


FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) - Kareem Jamar had 15 points and seven rebounds as Montana cruised to its sixth straight win, beating Northern Arizona 78-53 Thursday night.

Will Cherry scored 12 points and Mathias Ward added 10 for the Grizzlies (11-5, 4-0 Big Sky), who will visit Weber State in a battle of conference unbeatens Saturday.

Gabe Rogers and James Douglas scored 13 and 12 points, respectively, for Northern Arizona (5-12, 1-4), which has lost four straight.

Sharp ball movement and solid defense afforded Montana countless easy looks throughout the game. The Grizzlies scored 28 points off turnovers and held a 40-18 point advantage in the paint despite receiving just six points from 7-foot forward Derek Selvig.

Eight teams have shot 50 percent or better against the Lumberjacks this season. The 25-point loss was their worst loss at home against Montana since losing 77-46 in Flagstaff during the 1995-96 season.
