CEDAR CITY , Utah (AP) — Tyler Hall poured in 36 points on 12-of-19 shooting from the floor, including 8 of 14 from 3-point range, and Harald Frey added a career-best 30 points with six assists and four steals to help Montana State hold off Southern Utah 104-99 on Thursday night in a Big Sky Conference opener.

Montana State's two-man show combined to shoot 61 percent from the floor, accounting for 21 of 33 made baskets and 12 of the 14 3-pointers by the Bobcats (8-6). Hall and Frey have teamed up to make 84 of MSU's 121 3-pointers this season. Devonte Klines and reserve Joe Mvuezolo Jr. scored 13 and 12, respectively.

Jadon Cohee topped the Thunderbirds (6-6) with 20 points, James McGee scored 19, Dwayne Morgan added 15 points and Christian Musoko scored 12.

Montana State got a measure of revenge after the Thunderbirds knocked them out of the conference tournament last season with a 109-105 victory in triple overtime.

Frey scored seven points in a 13-4 run to close out the first half and the Bobcats led 49-46 at intermission. Montana State led the entire second half, but could never push its lead to double digits.
