Iowa State rolls past Montana State 81-59
Melvin Ejim scored 19 points and four teammates also reached
double figures, carrying Iowa State to an 81-59 victory over
Montana State on Saturday.
Diante Garrett added 17 points and Scott Christopherson 16 for
the Cyclones (6-0), who saw their string of 91-point games end at
three but still had more than enough firepower to snap Montana
State’s five-game winning streak.
Bobby Howard led the Bobcats (5-2) with 13 points and Erik Rush
Montana State led by six midway through the first half and
trailed just 39-33 after Howard’s basket early in the second half.
But Iowa State went a 16-2 run that included a 3-pointer, a driving
layup and an assist by Garrett to open a 55-35 lead, and controlled
the game from then on.
