BOZEMAN, Mont. -- Antonio Biglow scored 23 points on 8-of-13 shooting including four made 3-pointers to lead Montana State in a 83-64 victory over Portland on Sunday afternoon.
Biglow was one of four Bobcats in double figures. Flavien Davis had 13 points including a 6 for 9 mark from the free-throw line. Montana State was 27 of 39 from the line as a team. Jamie Stewart had 11 points and five rebounds and Calen Coleman chipped in 12 points in 25 minutes off the bench.
Montana State (1-1) led 43-30 at halftime and led by 21 with 15:52 to go in the second half but a 3-point basket by Kevin Bailey would cut the deficit to 57-46 with 11:48 remaining.
Bailey and Thomas van der Mars each scored 13 points in the loss for Portland (1-2). The Pilots shot 49 percent from the field but committed 19 turnovers and were outrebounded 34 to 24.
Guard Naz Mitrou-Long, whose 2015-16 season ended in December due to hip problems, has been granted a hardship waiver for the coming season, Iowa State said.
