Montana, which led 33-32 at the half, took the lead for good when Jamar made back-to-back 3s for a 48-44 lead with 10:41 left. Jordan Richardson cut the lead to 50-49 with a 3 but the Grizzlies took control with an 11-2 surge. Jordan Gregory started it with a three-point play and Eric Hutchinson scored the last six points.
