Posted: Updated:

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.

The Grizzlies (10-9, 5-5 Big Sky) made 6 of 8 free throws in the final 64 seconds to hold off the Bobcats (10-11, 5-5).

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.

Weisner made a layup at the 11:53 mark, ending a dry spell of 7:31 when the Griz missed nine straight shots and followed with 3. When the Cats got within one, he had five in a 7-0 surge.

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

Flavien Davis had 22 for MSU.

Hill and Jackie Elliott then traded 3s before Montana (13-6, 7-3 Big Sky) went on a 10-2 run, during which Carly Selvig scored four points, opening up an 80-77 lead with 40 seconds left.

Brumwell hit a pair of free throws 13 seconds later to cut the MSU deficit to one before Hill knocked down two from the line with 26 seconds left, making it 82-79.

Durham missed a 3-pointer before a jumper from Cole iced the game.

Hommes led Montana State (11-8, 6-4) with 17 points.
