GREAT FALLS — Sergio Berkley scored 25 of his game-high 33 points in the second half points to help Providence rally past Rocky Mountain College 86-79 in Frontier Conference play.
The Battlin' Bears (6-3, 0-2) play at Montana State Billings on Saturday in an exhibition game.
"I don't think we played with much energy the whole game," said Rocky coach Bill Dreikosen. "Berkley got going and hit some big shots. It was a little bit of everything, it was not one specific thing."
Latrelle Franklin led the Battlin' Bears with 24 points, while Jared Samuelson added 18. Danny Betcher finished with 10 rebounds.
Berkley was one of four Argos (7-3, 1-0) to finish in double figures. Providence finished 25 of 40 from the free throw line.
