CHENEY, Wash. (AP) - Jacob Wiley made 10 of 15 from the field and finished with 25 points, 10 rebounds and seven assists to help Eastern Washington beat Montana State 82-64 on Thursday night.
Felix Von Hofe had 19 points, including five 3-pointers, and Jesse Hunt scored 13 with seven boards.
The Eagles (10-5, 2-0 Big Sky Conference) used a 21-3 to take a 14-point lead with 6:34 left in the first half and led the rest of the way. Wiley scored nine of his 15 first-half points during that stretch that was capped by a Von Hofe 3-pointer.
The Bobcats (6-10, 1-2) pulled within one midway through the second half as Tyler Hall scored all of MSU’s points - including a 4-point play - during a 17-3 run. Bogdan Bliznyuk hit a 3 and Wiley and Hunt each converted a 3-point play to make it 58-48 with 8:01 to play. EWU made four 3s and 8 of 10 free throws from there to seal it.
Hall scored 26 of his 33 points in the second half. The sophomore has four games with at least 30 points this season.
