GREAT FALLS - Rocky Mountain College built a 29-point cushion in the first half Friday night and cruised to a 97-75 victory over the University of Great Falls in Frontier Conference men's basketball action.

The Battlin' Bears had five players score points in double figures: Chase Sukut 21, Devin Uskoski 16, Nate Richardson 14, Anthony Allen 13 and Chawn Johnson 11.

Uskoski also had 10 rebounds for his sixth straight double-double and 56th of his Rocky career. Point guard Richardson handed out 11 assists for his double-double.

Rocky is now 4-2 in league and 15-6 overall, while UGF tumbled to 1-5 and 7-15.

"I thought we came out and played with good intensity, made shots early and got ourselves in the position we wanted to be in the first half," said Rocky coach Bill Dreikosen. "Anytime you can get a win on the road that's very good."

The Bears, who led 57-29 during the first half, shot 59 percent from the field in the opening 20 minutes. Rocky ended up shooting 51.5 percent on the night, including 14 for 32 from 3-point territory.

Sukut, Uskoski and James Bulluck had three 3-pointers apiece.

Rocky committed just 12 turnovers and controlled the flow of rebounds, 38-33.

UGF received 26 points from Rayshaun Ames, 16 from Keithan Gregg and 13 from Matt Neimeyer. Ames had eight rebounds and Gregg nine assists.

Rocky, which has won three straight games, will be playing at Montana State-Northern tonight. The Lights beat No. 11-ranked Carroll College 73-69 in Havre on Friday night.
