CEDAR CITY, Utah (AP) — Jamar Akoh scored 23 points, Ahmaad Rorie had 23 points, seven assists and three steals and Montana beat Southern Utah 89-76 on Monday for its 13th straight victory in the series.

Montana led 16-13 midway through the first half until it went on a 13-2 run to make it 28-15. Southern Utah rallied with an 11-2 run to get within 32-28, but the Grizzlies rebuilt a double-digit lead by the break. Rorie scored 12 of Montana’s first 16 points and finished the half with 14.
