Peatling, Hunt lead Eastern Washington past Montana 78-71

CHENEY, Wash. (AP) Mason Peatling tossed in 17 points to lead five players in double figures and Jesse Hunt grabbed a career-high 15 rebounds - nearly half of Eastern Washington's total - as the Eagles defeated Montana 78-71 on Thursday night.

Peatling made 6 of 8 shots and added three steals for the Eagles (4-12, 2-3 Big Sky Conference), while Hunt's effort for EWU on the boards left the Grizzlies (10-6, 3-2) with only a 32-31 rebound advantage. Tyler Kidd finished with 13 points and five assists, Jack Perry scored 12 on 4-of-4 shooting from 3-point range and Jacob Davison and Kim Aiken Jr. added 11 points apiece.

Michael Oguine had 18 points and seven rebounds for Montana, while Ahmaad Rorie scored 17. Sayeed Pridgett contributed 16 points and nine boards. Both teams shot 48 percent from the floor, but the Eagles buried 9 of 17 from beyond the arc, while Montana hit just 4 of 19 (21 percent).

Eastern Washington led 32-29 at halftime and Aiken's 3-pointer with 10:32 left in the game pushed the Eagles' lead to 58-48. The Grizzlies twice pulled within three points from there but could get no closer.
