Bozeman, MT - Montana State senior Ashley Brumwell posted a team-high 18 points to pace four Bobcats in double-figures as MSU cruised to an 89-78 victory over Portland State, Thursday night in Worthington Arena.

Brumwell, a native of Hamilton, paced Montana State (7-5, 2-1) in the opening stanza with 12 points and finished the game connecting on six-of-13 from the field and five-of-six from the line.

Also in double-digits for MSU were Jasmine Hommes 15, Kalli Durham 15, and Jackie Elliott 14. For the game, the Bobcats shot 51 percent from the field, including a 55 percent effort in the opening period.

"We're doing a lot of things well," said MSU head coach Tricia Binford. "We're shooting very well, executing and playing unselfish basketball. We also did a nice job of taking care of the ball."

Montana State committed a season-low eight turnovers, including just one miscue in the second half. MSU forced Portland State (4-9, 2-2) into 17 turnovers and 41 percent from the field.

PSU opened the game scoring the first five points, before MSU rattled off a 21-5 run over the next ten-minutes to cruise to a 44-29 halftime lead.

The Bobcats built its largest lead at 60-39 with fifteen-minutes, 17-seconds remaining on a jumper via Margreet Barhoum. PSU whittled the margin down to 11 points with 3:40 left before junior point-guard Ausha Cole nailed a three-pointer from the left wing to put the game away.

Alexa Dawkins and Barhoum led the Bobcat bench and out-scored the PSU subs 19-14. Dawkins finished with eight points and a career-high three blocks, while Barhoum chipped in seven points and a career-high six assists.

Portland State won the battle of the boards, out-rebounding Montana State 44-36. The Bobcats were led under the glass by Elliott 11, and Brumwell nine.
