Montana State senior Kalli Durham posted 13 points and collected a career-high 15 rebounds to guide the Bobcats to a 76-57 win over Montana State Billings, Monday night in Worthington Arena.

Montana State (6-4) ran its win streak to four games pulling away from the Yellowjackets at the midway point of the opening stanza with a 9-1 run as MSU's inside tandem of Jasmine Hommes and Peyton Ferris combined for seven points.

MSU pushed its advantage to 17 points at intermission paced by Hommes with ten points and Durham and Ferris with eight points, apiece.

“I really liked our approach to the game in the first half,” MSU Head Coach Tricia Binford said. “It was nice to see us come out and push the tempo. I thought we played selfless basketball and kept it simple.”

Montana State took its largest lead of the game at the 9:46 mark of the final period at 59-36 following a Durham jumper.

Durham registered her second career double-double since notching 17 points and ten rebounds against Southern Utah on March 4, 2013.

“Rebounding is effort and a mentality for crashing the boards,” Binford said. “Kalli just has a knack for it. She puts herself in great position and fights for every loose ball under the glass.”

Hommes finished the game with a team-high 16 points, while Ferris finished with 12 points coming off the bench.

Montana State shot 43 percent from the field and held a 56-40 edge in rebounding.

MSU Billings (7-3) played the game as an exhibition and were paced by Kayleen Goggins with 16 points and seven rebounds.

The Bobcats will travel to Washington State on Dec. 20 in Pullman.
