BOZEMAN, Mont. (AP) - Maggie Rickman and Kellie Cole scored 14 points apiece as Montana beat Montana State for the sixth straight time on the road, 72-65 on Monday.

Torry Hill added 13 points for Montana (18-9, 12-6 Big Sky). The Lady Griz forced 19 turnovers and held Montana State to 32.3 percent shooting.

Montana State (13-14, 8-10) was led by Jasmine Hommes with 15 points and eight rebounds. Margreet Barhoum and Alexa Dawkins had 10 each. Jackie Elliott added a game-high 13 rebounds.

The Bobcats dropped below the .500 mark for the first time all season and are one win away from clinching a spot in the conference tournament.

Montana led by as many as 10 in the second half but the Bobcats got within single-digits, with under a minute to play, after a 7-0 run capped by an Elliott free throw.

Montana then made 5 of 6 free throws to seal it.
