BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Andre Adams matched his career high with 23 points as Southern Utah topped Idaho State 94-80 in the first round of the Big Sky Conference tournament on Wednesday.

Brandon Better had 17 points for Southern Utah (15-15). Jacob Calloway added 15 points. Harrison Butler had 13 points for Southern Utah.

Alonzo Walker had 17 points for the Bengals (11-19). Sam Dowd added 12 points. Jared Stutzman had 10 points.

“I’m really proud of our guys’ effort, especially after we stubbed our toe to start the game we bounced back really well,” said SUU head coach Todd Simon, whose team advanced out of the first round of the Big Sky Tournament for the third-straight year. “I thought our poise was really good, and to our player’s credit I thought they executed the game plan very well and once we made the adjustment to go zone they played very hard in that.”
