BOZEMAN, Mont. (AP) - Kareem Jamar scored 20 points and Michael Weisner had all 10 of his in the last 12 minutes as Montana held on for a 70-66 win over Montana State on Monday.

Montana made 10 of its first 13 shots to open a 26-15 lead and shot 56 percent to lead 44-32 at the half. But the Grizzlies were ice cold as the second half started and the Bobcats clawed within 48-43.

Mario Dunn, Jr. added 13 and Jordan Gregory 11 for Montana.

Flavien Davis had 22 for MSU.

    ENTIAT, Wash. - A burn out operation is planned for Tuesday morning in an effort to establish a secure line in the bottom of the canyon where the Mills Canyon Fire is burning. Burning material rolling downhill and igniting spot fires on the north side of Swakane Canyon have caused concerns and indicate a vulnerability to a fire escape and repeatedly expose firefighters to very steep terrain and rolling material.
