MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) — Jamar Akoh scored 21 points and tied a career high with 18 rebounds to help Montana beat Sacramento State 87-56 on Thursday night.

Ahmaad Rorie added 21 points with five 3-pointers and the Grizzlies (10-4, 3-0 Big Sky Conference) made 13 of 20 from 3-point range.

Montana opened the second half with a 10-2 run to lead 54-36 and led by at least 20 after Michael Oguine's 3-pointer made it 70-48 with 7:36 left in the game.

The game was closely contested for the first 13 minutes of the first half and then Montana pulled away from a 27-all tie with a 13-0 run and went into halftime up 44-34.

Sayeed Pridgett added 13 points and Oguine scored 12 for the Grizzlies.

Marcus Graves was the Hornets' lone scorer in double digits with 10. Sacramento State (6-5, 0-2) was 3 of 14 from 3-point range.
