BOZEMAN, Mont. (AP) - Troy Huff scored 25 points on 10-of-17 shooting, leading North Dakota's second-half comeback in an 82-73 victory over Montana State on Thursday night.
Aaron Anderson added 17 points, including the last seven by the Green and White (10-12, 7-6 Big Sky), who trailed 55-41 after MSU's Michael Dison made a jumper with 13:36 to play. North Dakota responded with a 26-4 run, capped by Huff's dunk with 4:38 left, to take the lead for good, and Anderson's three-point play, layup and two free throws in the final 1:01 sealed the victory.
Xavier Blount had 19 points and seven rebounds, and Christian Moon added 16 points, for the Bobcats (10-11, 7-6), who hosted North Dakota for the first time since 1964.
The Green and White swept the season series, having won 86-73 in Grand Forks, N.D. on Jan 12, and edged ahead 9-8 in the all-time series between the schools.
