Montana continues five game winning streak with double digit victory over Idaho State

University of Montana basketball is breezing through the Big Sky conference, with it’s fifth winning game in a row to Idaho State Bengals, 78-63. This marks the teams 19th straight win over the Bengals. 

Montana maintains its position as first in the conference 12-3, leaving the Bengals in last with a reversed 3-12. Griz is dominating in its games with all of the teams past five matches leading to wins in the double digits. 

Griz showed they were there to win from there very start, scoring 14 seconds into the game and converting on its first three trips up the floor. 

Star of the game was guard Sayeed Pridgett. Pridgett scored 24 points for the team and had nine assists. 

"There were usually two guys on him, so he was shouting to get the ball so that he could get it back out," head coach Travis DeCuire said of Pridgett. "That led to a lot of points for us. His balance was huge for us, as it has been all year."

Griz shot .559 from the floor, the teams seventh game in a row over 50 percent. The Bengals shot .393. 

Griz never trailed during the game. The smallest lead took place in the second half with the Bengals trailing by five. Griz quickly came back, not letting Idaho score for more than 6 minutes, getting ahead by 18 at one point. 

The Griz will now have a week off before playing again in the second half of the Brawl of the Wild in Bozeman on Feb. 22.
