Griz take control in 2nd half for 60-53 win over ND State
MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) Jamar Akoh scored 17 points with eight rebounds and Bobby Moorehead scored 13 and Montana beat North Dakota State 60-53 Monday night.
It was Akoh's second game back after missing six games with a wrist injury.
The Bison led 23-19 at halftime before the Grizzlies took control with a 13-4 run when Moorehead and Ahmaad Rorie made back-to-back 3-pointers, Sayeed Pridgett added a layup and Moorhead another 3 for a 32-27 lead Montana (6-3) would never relinquish.
Earlier, Tyson Ward made a 3-point play, followed with 3-pointer and Deng Geu made a pair of foul shots and the Bison led 23-17 with 2:15 before intermission. Both teams made nine first-half field goals, but Montana didn't make one trip to the foul line. North Dakota (4-8) only made three trips and made them all.
Ward led North Dakota State with 15 points, Vinnie Shahid scored 14 and Geu added 13 with six rebounds.
