OREM (AP) — Isaac Neilson scored 15 points and pulled down 11 rebounds to lead Utah Valley over Montana Tech 72-47 on Friday.

The double-double was Neilson's fifth of the season. Randolph Brandon and Jared Stutzman added 10 points each for the Wolverines (6-6), who made 19 of 24 free throws to Montana Tech's 3-of-5. Jordan Poydras had nine points on a trio of 3-pointers.

Lukas Vining scored 12 points to lead the Orediggers of the NAIA, who played the game as an exhibition.

Utah Valley opened the second half on a 16-3 run to extend their lead to 51-25, with 15 minutes remaining and continued to distance themselves from the Orediggers.

The Wolverines had a double-digit lead midway through the first half and led by 16 with 4:45 to go before the break. Montana Tech got within eight but Utah State built the lead back to 13 points, 35-22, by halftime.
