GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) - Geno Crandall scored 22 points and North Dakota earned its 12th straight Big Sky home win in an 88-65 blowout over Idaho on Saturday.

The game was the only regular season matchup between the two schools. With the win North Dakota maintains its one-game lead over Eastern Washington for second place in the conference standings.

Quinton Hooker finished with 21 points and Carson Shanks added 11 for the Fighting Hawks (15-8, 10-3), who was offensively efficient all the way around. North Dakota shot 50 percent from the field, 50 percent from 3-point range, and 85.7 percent at the free throw line.

The Fighting Hawks put together a 22-5 stretch over roughly six minutes in the first half and led 49-33 at the break. Two Crandall free throws gave North Dakota a 20-point lead, and Idaho (13-11, 8-5) never mounted a serious challenge the rest of the way.
